business Cycle Merrily Rolling 
ilong to New Crests of Activity 

San Francisco and Bay Area business activity continues to improve, the Chani- 
*r research department reports. The jreneral business activity index for Xovem- 
•r was 4.1 per cent hijrher than for Novendjer, 1961, and dropped less than one 
?r cent from the 1962 bifih reached in October. An ei<iht per cent gain in bank 
;hits over the same month of 1961 was the chief reason for the rise. Department 
jre sales rose 2.3 per cent and electric energy 
les were up 0.7 per cent. Freight carload- 
gs declined by 9.9 per cent. For the nine- 
unty Bay Area, freight carloadings were off 
J per cent. 

Bank debits in Oakland rose 21.4 per cent 
er .Novend)er, 1961. although department 
jre sales remained at about the same level, 
in Jose recorded a similar spectacular jump 
bank debits of 23.8 per cent, while depart- 
snt store sales showed a 4.4 i)er cent gain 
er November, 1961. 

For the first time in the history of the Bay 
ea, building |)ermits issued in the nine- 
unty Bay Area totalled more tlian a billion 
liars. 

Permits i-suid during November in San 
anrisco added uit to more than S20 million, 
u- bulk of this (S12.H90.00()) was for con- 
uction of three 22 and 23->tory apartment 
lildings in the Golden Gateway redevelop- 
•nt area. The November figure for the Bay 
ea was $95 million, of which $64 million 
is for residential construction. The residen- 
il figure brought tlie 1962 total for such 
nstruction to a record high also — $637 mil- 
in for the building of a record 54,812 homes 
<l apartnunt>. 




Shop-owners Form 
Union-st. Ass'n 

A new Union Street Association has been 
formed by shop-owners and merchants of the 
Cow Hollow area to cooperate with the Cham- 
ber to beautify the Union Street area. 

Goal of the association is to retain the his- 
torical flavor and individuality of district 
shops. 

A four-man executive board has been set up 
to guide the organization in place of the usual 
presidi-nt. Mend)ers of the executive board are 
Mrs. Marian Britton. Knnis Bromfield. Mau- 
rice Samter and Kugene DeVencenzi. Secretary 
is Mr>-. Helvi \\ almsley. 



School ^Drop-outs^ 
Concern of Chamber 
Education Committee 

The Chamber education committee plans tn 
help implement local projects under the m-w 
Manpower Development and Training Act. ac- 
cording to committee chairman Kenneth K. 
Rearwin. 

Chamber action will include assistance h> 
CSES in finding areas of training need, pub- 
licity for the program and encouragement u< 
employers to cooperate and committee mem- 
bers to find part-time jobs for some potential 
drop-outs who. in committee language, could 
be expected to "cut the buck." 

The Congress has appropriated $70 million 
for solution of the program, and California 
has been allotted $6 million from this fund. 
Under the retraining act, CSES will determine 
areas of need.

EARLY "SPRIING" — Regardless of the thermometer or the calendar, "spring" 
came to San Francisco lust iveekend with the planting of 50,000 packets of uild- 
flower seeds on the Market-street side of Twin Peaks. Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, 
about 700 of them, turned out to sow the hillsi<ie — pointing up the Chamber of 
Commerce "'Plant-a-Tree" fVeek (April 1-6). Sponsors of the seed-planting in- 
cluded the Chamber, San Francisco Beautiful, arul the Department of Public 
IT orks. Richfield Oil Co. donated the seeds. 

Chamber Approves 
Hunters^ Point 
Freeway Route 

San Kranci>c<) Chamber of Commerce is on 
record in support of "Alternative Route C" 
of the projjosed Hunters Point Freeway. 

Several [)lans were advanced for the free- 
way to link the Southern-Embarcadero Free- 
way extension with a point on State Sign 
Route 253 which branches off Highway 101 
near the San Francisco-San Mateo c<iunly line. 

j Other routes proposed, the Chamber board 

I said, would impinge on existing residential 

! and industrial areas, while Route C would 
skirt these areas. It would be constructed on 
fill areas currently under water.

Completion of the Islais Creek produce 
market will mark a signal victory for the agri- 
cultural committee of the San Francisco 
Chamber of Commerce, according to Chamber 
president Harry A. Lee. 

Ground for the new terminal was broken by 
Mayor George Christopher February 4, fol- 
lowing dissension which had stymied plans for 
establishment of the new site for years. 

Lee pointed out that the Chamber had been 
active in establishment of the new site since 
formation of its agricultural conmiittee in 
1941. 

He said that 34 produce firms are com- 
mitted to the Islais Creek site. All will move 
from the present area, center of the Golden 
Gateway Redevelopment Project, which will 
see the rise of new apartment and office build- 
ings. 

Further, he said, under the presidency of 
Angelo J. Scampini. the Islais Creek Produce 
Market Corporation "will well serve agricul- 
ture and allied industries which, together, 
form the number one industry of both San 
Francisco and the state of California." 

Cost of the new produce market will be 
about $4,460,000.

of traffic for Fibreboard 
Paper Products, was re- 
named assistant chair- 
man of the committee. 

Carleton and Morin 
will direct activity of the 
53-man committee with 
special emphasis on 
three major jjoinfs: 

• Elimination of freight surcharges within 
14 counties of the bay region levied by car- 
riers who claim labor costs in the area justify 
extra freight charges. 

• Maintaining a favorable freight rate 
structure commensurate with the geographic 
location of San Francisco in relation to other 
major industrial areas in interstate and for- 
eign commerce. 

• F'ncouraging use of new and imi)r()ved 
types of ecpiipment and facilities by all forms 
of transportation serving San Francisco and 
the Bay Area.

[directors Reaffirm 
Position that mining 
Exchange Should Stay 

On recoinmendation of the Chamijcr'.s niin- 
ig committee, the Chamber board of directors 
as reaffirmed its position to "support the 
etention of the San Francisco Mining Ex- 
hange as an institution which has rendered 
nd should continue to provide essential serv- 
:es in the development of the mineral sources 
f the state of California and the West by 
laking possible the financing of small mining 
nterprises." 

Action of the Chamber was announced by 
[arry A. Lee, Chamber jiresident. 

"This action was taken with the knowledge 
lat certain charges were made against the 
Exchange and certain of its members and 
eterminations in this regard were the object 
f a hearing conducted in San Francisco by 
ames G. Ewell as the hearing officer for the 
Exchange with Frank E. Kennamer serving as 
le Commission's counsel and Gardiner John- 
Dn serving as counsel for the Exchange." Lee 
aid. 

"At no time has the Chamber endeavored 
) arrive at judgment on any of the charges 
^hich the Commission made," Lee continued, 
but it has taken the position that San Fran- 
isco and the West need a mining exchange 
hich has been and should continue to be 
Libject to regulation and due scrutiny by the 
ecurities and Exchange Commission as well 
s by state agencies. 

"In response to a statement attributed to 
Tr. Kennamer, it should be obvious that the 
ihamber at no time has made representations 
hat charges of fraud, dishonesty and manipu- 
ition of Securities prices be forgotten and 
rushed under the fable without a hearing.' 
'he facts are in direct opposition to this 
tatement. The Chamber not only recognizes 
ut encourages the functions of the Securities 
nd Exchange Commission, but this has no 
irect relationship to the Chamber's support 
f the retention of the San Francisco Mining 
Exchange as an institution operating in full 
ompliance with the law. 

"It is possible that considerable liberty 
hould be given to the Commission's counsel 
1 such proceedings, but this is no justifica- 
ion for the misinterjjretation of either the 
fficial statement of the Chamber's position or 
le testimony of the Chamber's representa-

TWA To Stage 'Road Show' for Suppliers

"We think these programs will promote new 
business for local manufacturing firms and, 
at the same time, give us the advantage of 
more competitive bidding for our business," 
said J. A. Shaunty, TWA's purchasing vice 
president. "We spend more than $70,000,000 
a year and want to buy material that meets 
our exacting specifications at i)rices reflecting 
true competitive values," he added.

broad specifications of equipment not yet 
available but which TWA envisions will be 
needed in the future and as such will offer 
manufacturers a challenge to develop and 
market new items. 

Buyers will be on hand at the presentations 
to answer questions and distribute brochures 
outlining TWA's wide range of purchasing 
needs. The brochures will list buyers of spe- 
cific items to facilitate follow-up contact with 
TWA by suppliers. 

Marketing representatives also will be on 
iumd to outline TWA services for the business 
traveler including its briefcase commuter and 
conference services, cargo service and its abil- 
ity to serve businessmen interested in the 
conunon market or international trade. TWA 
is the only U.S. flag airline serving both prin- 
cipal American and Kuroixan market centers. 

TWA officials feel that their need to reduce 
purchasing costs through an exi)andcd group 
of manufacturers, offering the required items, 
is consistent with the objectives of many state 
administrations faced with decreasing markets 
and the resulting unemployment. 

This program is a continuation of the air- 
line's vigorous approach to combat the fast- 
rising cost of its purchasing needs which was 
first dramatized in June of 1960 when some 
ISO representatives of manufacturers and sup- 
pliers met in Kansas City at T\\ A's invitation 
to discuss ways of halting the skyrocketing 
price tags on many items.

San Franciscana — 
S. F. Symphony Steeped in Tradition 




1''KE.\(>11 BAROQUE . . . SAW Imint' <>/ upvra and symphony . . . 

The San Francij^co Symphony Orchestra has a tradition which closely 
parallels the colorful history of the city. 

Mii.xic in San Francisco has come a lonj: way since a woman violinist in 
the (iohl Rush days ''taxed strenjrth and muscle hy alternatinfr musical offer- 
in«:s with «rymnastic skills" in the city's El Dorado {iamhlinji saloon on the 
Barhary Coast. 

The first concert performed in San Francisco, in 1850, was described as 
"an exquisite execution of the classics on a troml)one hy Sijinor Lo])ero."' A 
Hun«:arian violinist, Miska Hauser, led the city's first chamber music cjroup. 
descrilx'd l)v him as '"a mental quaclrolotjue of equally attuned souls." (The 
viola plaver later succumbed to an attack of indijiestion. ) 

riie orchestra today comprises more than 100 musicians. Its members 
form the core of musicians for the ballet, the opera, and various other orches- 
tral jrroups cultural Icfiatees of a musical tradition as i)roud as the city itself. 

Althoufih the present musical orjianization was founded in 1911. the 
orchestra's roots antedate this by more than half a <-enlury. San Francisco's 
world of svmphonic music was spawned in the opulent, turbulent period of 
the (;old Rush. 

After gold was discovered at Coloma. Rudolph Herold organized the city's 
first known "symphonic group" in 1854, which continued to give concerts for 
more than 25 years. Herold, a pianist and conductor, led an orchestra of 60 
pieces in the first of his concerts in 1865. He was followed by such distin- 
guished conductors as Louis Homeier, Gustav Hinrichs and Fritz Scheel. (The 
latt<'r. highly esteemed by Brahms, Tschaikovsky, and Von Bulow, founded 
the Pbiladilphia Symphony Orchestra.) 

The first major orchestra to allow women to perform, the San Francisco 
Symphonv Orchestra also has fostered such pro(ligies as Yehudi Menuhin. 
Ruth Sl< nzvnska, Ruggiero Ricci. Patricia Benkman and (irisha GolubofT. 

In the '50's and '6()'s singers Eliza Bis<(ianti, Catherine IIay<\s and Madam 
Anna Bishop gave San Francisco its first reputation as an opera-loving com- 
munity. The famed Tivoli Opera House, beginning in 1879. bad operatic per- 
formances every day in the year without a break for 26 straight years (a 
record in the history of th<> American tluatre). The gnat Luisa Tetrazzini

Golden Gate World Trade- Travel 
Week Celebration Set May 19-25 



Golden Gate World Trade and Travel Week 
will be held in San Francisco May 19-25. 
according to J. T. Buckley, general chairman. 

The observance, which coincides with Na- 
tional World Trade Week — proclaimed by 
the President of the United States, and Na- 
tional Maritime Day. May 22 — will be held 
locally under the auspices of the -San Fran- 
cisco Area World Trade Association of the 
Chamber. 

World Trade Week, which has been held 
annually since 1927, concerns one of "the 
true boom industries of northern California." 
according to Buckley. Export-import trade 
through the Golden Gate totaled $375 mil- 
lion that year. A decade ago the figure for 
the San Francisco Customs District exports 
and imports was $733 milloin — today it is 
$1.3 billion. 

Unlike some of northern California's other 
"boom" industries, international trade has 
been an integral and vital part of the Cali- 
fornia scene since Frederick W. Macondray 
— who later became president of the San 
Francisco Chamber of Commerce in 1856-57 
— collected hides with Richard H. Dana, (au- 
thor of Two Years Before the Mast). 

■'Today this $1.3 billion-a-year volume of 
exports and imports is perhaps the major 
industry in northern California." Buckley con- 
tinued. "Its impact reaches every segment of 
our economy, including agriculture, indus- 
try, commerce, shipping, banking, insurance, 
transportation, communications, research and 
education. 

"Additionally, international travel has be- 
come an important industry within the frame- 
work of world trade. The tourist and busi- 
nessman spend millions of dollars in our ho- 
tels, restaurants, theatres, and on ships, air- 
planes, trains and buses. 

"Golden Gate WOrld Trade and Travel 
Week is designed this year to broaden the 
I)ublic"s knowledge and undcrslandiiig of the

Franrisco State Collejie offers the clearest picture of the extent of that devel- 
opment. 

State's 95-acre campus near Lake Merced was estahlished in 1950. At that 
time the students numhered 5.100. the faculty. 299. Today, student lists at the 
^cho<»l carry the names of 14.000. and the faculty nears 1,000. 

San Francisco State was founded in 1899 on Powell Street hetween Bush 
and Pine, a hlock from the present location of its Downtown Extension Cen- 
ter. It was ori}:inallv intended to offer a two-year eours<' for elementary school 
teachers in a plan developed hy Dr. Frederic L. Burk. Since th<Mi. its {jrowth 
has heen slow, sometimes painful — hut always careful. 

Inder the leadership of Dr. Glenn Dumke, now chancellor of the state 
collejre svstem. its liheral arts profiram was extended. Today, it offers pro- 
grams at the haccalaureate and master's levels and is cooi)eratin<r with the 
I nivrrsitv of California in the development of a program which will ulti- 
matelv <»ffer students the opj)ortunity to participate in doctorate courses. 

Professors, instructors and teachers have heen carefully selected. Many 
offer living refutation of the cliche that those who teach cannot do. Memhers 
of the art department exhihit paintings and scul|ttures a<tiv»dy throughout 
the country. nuMuhers of the literary staff are puhlishing writers, engineers 
and scientists and nuMuhers of the telvision and radio schools are active par- 
ticipants in th<'se fields. 

The ( ampus c(mtains 18 permanent huildings. A nineteenth is now huild- 
ing. It is a Sl.l.'i million Psychology-Air Science structure. It will contain the 
nuist complete lahoratory psyclndogical t<>sting of any like facility in the 
state. A three-storv lihrary carries 180,000 volumes: it adds 18.000 annually 
and has 1.600 periodicals on hand. 

At present, "State" is headed hy Dr. Paul A. Dodd. economist and former 
Dean of the College of Letters and Sciences at ICLA. Dr. Dodd has carried 
forth the policv that "those who teach must also do," and the production oi 
arts antl sciern'cs hv faculty and students have home amph' proof of the 
realitv of that goal. 

\s (!alif(»rnia grows, so gri»\\s San Francis<'o .Stale, prinu- example «)l the 
i:r(»\\th of the state c(dlege system of the most hurgeoning state in the nation.

Progressogram No. 56 
State College Enrollment Tops the IVation 








<-rt r 



S.F. STATE'S nrw Psychology-Air Science building . . . 

One of the most frraphir illustrations of California's surge to the position 
of the No. 1 state is that of the development in (juantity and quality — of its 
state collejie system. 

California's universities and eollejies have the larjrest total enrollment of 
the hifrher edu« ational system of any state in the nation. And perhaps San 
Franeiseo Slate College offers the clearest picture of the extent of that devel- 
opment. 

State's 95-aere campus near Lake Merced was estahlished in 1950. At that 
time the students numhered ').]()(), the faculty. 299. Today, student lists at the 
school carry the names of 14,()()(). and the faculty nears 1,000. 

San Francisco State was founded in 1899 on Powell Street hetween Bush 
and Pine, a Mock from the itnscnt location of its Downtown Extension Cen- 
ter, it was orijiinaily intended to offer a two-year course for elementary school 
teachers in a plan developed hy Dr. Frederic L. Burk. Since then, its {irowth 
has heen slow, sometimes painful — hut always careful, 

Inder the lea<lership of Dr. Glenn Dumke, now chancellor of the state 
collcfic system, its liheral arts profiram was extended. Today, it offers pro- 
grams at the haccalaureate and master's levels and is coop(Matinj: with the 
University of (California in the development of a program which will ulti- 
mately offer student> the opportunity to |»arlicipate in doctorate courses. 

Professors, instructors and tea<hers have heen carefully sehcted. Many 
offer living refutation of the cliche that those who teach cannot do. Memliers 
of the art departnunt exhihit paintings and sculptures actively throughout 
the count rv, nuMuhers of the literary staff are puhlishing writers, engineers 
and scientists and memhers of the telvision and radio schools are active par- 
tici|>ants in thoe fields. 

The campus contains 18 permanent liuildings. A nineteenth is now huild- 
ing. It is a SI. 13 million Psv<liology- Air Scienc*- structure. It will contain the 
most complete lahoralory psy«hological testing of any like facility in the 
stale. A three-storv liiirary carries 180,000 volumes: it adds 18.000 aiunially 
and has 1,600 periodicals on hand. 

At present, "State" is headed hy Dr. Paul A. Do<ld, economist and fonner

Chamber Suggests Objectives 
^or Kennedy Tax Programs 

S{)e< ific objectives in regard to federal tax reduction and reforms have been 
mounted in behalf of the board of directors of the Chamber by Harry A. Lee, 
resident. Lee outlined a set of five recommendations, approved by the Board 
ter studies and recommendations by the Chamber tax section of which H. C. 
yler is ehainnan. The five-point recommendation, aceordino; to Lee: 
• "tax reduction should \n- areom- 

Supreme Court Office 
'Should Stay in S.F.' 

All (^alifornians should urge their legisla- 
tors and (/overnor Brown to allow the state's 
Supreme Court justices to "exercise their ju- 
dicial independence in determining the head- 
(juarters of that court." according to action 
taken by the board of directors of the Cham- 
ber. 

The Chamber board's resolution followed 
recommendations from the Governor's office 
that -Supreme Court headcpiarters be trans- 
ferred from .San Francisco to .Sacramento. 

The Chamber resolution pointed out that 
transfer of .Supreme Court offices to Sacra- 
mento "is not only unnecessary for efficient 
operation but is also undesirable in achieving 
the full benefits of the separation of govern- 
mental jtowers upon which our government is 
based." 

The Suj)reme (^ourt has "operated histori- 
cally from central headcpiarters in San Fran- 
cisco and has a(loi)t«(l the practice of holding 
sessions of that court in l.os Angeles and Sac- 
ramento as well as San PVancisco," the Cham- 
ber [toitited out. 



plished only in assm-iation with definite 
plans for reducing, or at least holding, 
the line on budget expenditures; 

• "except where imperative to national 
defense, new government spen«ling pro- 
grams should not he launched during 
the period over which unusual budget 
deficits are expected from tax reduc- 
tion; 

• "tax reduction methods should be 
considered separately on their own mer- 
its; 

• "lax reform should he <-onsi<lered as 
a separate ohj<*ctive to hv accomplished 
through studied ov«-rall revisions of the 
lnl4Tnal Ite>enue (^ode; 

• "the objective of a tax reduction pro- 
gram should be to spur the et'ononiy." 
(Jn tile last point, Lee stressed that, "to do 

lis, it must firovide strong incentive to various 
•ctors of the economy, i)articularly to en- 
Durage increased firivate investment and busi- 
ess activity, which, in turn, will create addi- 
onal payrcdis and a broader tax base." 

Produce Market Noiv 
ihead Of Schedule 

Produce niercliants of .San Francisco will 
love into their new home ahead of schedule, 

spokesman for the developers of the $4.7 
lillion project has <lisclosed. 

"We have started to [)our concret<' for the 
oundations of four buildings," Herbert Ort- 
lan of the Dworman l)eveloi)ment C]o. said, 
and we are working .Saturdays and .Sundays 
(» speed the job." 

Ortnian istimaled that the 2r)-acre market 
t Islais (]reek would be "ready three weeks 
head of the July target date." 

In addition U) the 54 produce stalls in the 
our buildings, three restaurants, an office 
triM tiire, bank, covered carports, loading 
locks and a service station will be constructed. 

Th«' move will end eight years of negotiation 
>y the markelmen to find a location within 
vui Francisc<», with the Ciiambcr playing a 
eading rede from tfie start. Vacating of the (dd 
iiarket will speed completion of another 
!hand)er initiated project — the (ioldtn Cate- 
vay. 



Street Tree-Planting

A street tree-planting booklet has been up- 
dated and re-issued by the Chamber publicity 
department.

Bill For City^ County Streets and 
Highways Development Backed 

Legislation to provide additional revenues to cities and counties through a 
lighway users' gas tax for iniprovcinent an<l construction of streets and highway 
ystenis has been approved by the (^hanilier hoard of directors, according to Harry 
L Lee, Chamber president. Action of the board resulted from recommendations 
>f the Chamber civic development committee, of which Edward C. Sequeira, gen- 



■ral manager of the Hotel Sir Francis Drake 
tnd a Chamber director, is chairman, and the 
.'hamher street, highway and bridge section. 
>f whidi Leonard .S. Mosias. architect and also 
I Chamber director, is chairman. 

Re|)resentatives of the .State Chamber, the 
Jan Francisco Department of Public Works. 
California Trucking Association. .State Divi- 
ion of Highways. Municipal Railway. Cali- 
ornia State Automobile Association, various 
lil companies and others, who met with the 
Chamber street, highway and bridge section 
o discuss the matter on March 13, also agreed 
in principle," to support Senate Bill 344. 
There- is no known organized opposition to 
>|{344.i 

"During the past few years there has been 
ncreasing concern that road and street devel- 
ipmcnt in the counties and cities is not keej)- 
ng pace with demands of modern traffic." 
klosias pointed out. "It seems that California's 
iverall road program was destined to be some- 
vhat out of balance in that a modern network 
»f state highways was being provided but that 
he feeder and connector roads to the state 
ystem would not be adequate to provide a 
atisfactory overall transj)ortation system. 

"In some areas these deficiencies have had a 
erious impact on the safe and expeditious 
novemcnt of traffic and constitute a critical 
lecd for im[)rovement," Mosias continued. 

"Some cities and counties have expended 
Mtnsiderable effort in providing adecjuate 
•oads. Others have done very little and some, 
lothing at all." 

In approving the bill the Chamber reeom- 
Tiended that: 

• "funds for distribution to cili<'«. and 
counties nIiouIcI he limited to e.\pen«li- 
ture for u<-«|ui>ition of riKlil-of-way and 
coHMtruetion on major and collector 
syxlems; 

• "availuliility of any nvv. fund> to a 
liM-al agency should he contingent upon 
a reasonable (h-gre*- of hw-al nialrliing 
efTorl; 

• *^allo<-ation of more funds should he 
based on factors in<-ludinK registration, 
assessed evaluation and population; 

• *^any new h-gishition should inelufh* a 
provision to permit local agreements he- 
l\M-<-n counties and cities for distribu- 



tion of new money within the county; 

• '^the program should provide funds 
which can be reasonably employed to 
good advantage and, which at the same 
time, will not impose unreasonable tax 
hurflen ; 

• "none of the present state highway 
allo<-ation should he diverted to the im- 
provement of city streets or country 
roads; all funds that can reasonably be 
anticipated for expenditure on the state 
highway system will he needed to meet 
future re(|uirements of that system," 
the Chamber pointed out. 

.San Francisco would receive approximately 
$2.239.1.52 if the legislation is passed.

Giants Really Mean Business — For 
The Pennant and for the Economy 

Noi-thern California baseball fans expended about S17 million, by conserva- 
tive estimation, to see the San Francisco Giants perform last year, according to the 
Chamber research department. 

During the 1962 baseball season, 1,592,594 fans visited Candlestick Park to see 
81 regular home season contests — an increase of 201,915 over the 77 game home- 
stand in 1961. In addition, the National 



League playoff game in San Francisco drew 
32.660 fans and the four games of the World 
.Series here attracted another 176.738 fans. 
The 1962 home attendance total of 1,802.012 
represented an overall increase of 411.333 
over the previous season. 

Revenue alone from 1962 ticket sales 
amounted to nearly $5 million. An estimated 
50 per cent of the fans — or more than 
900.000 — were out-of-towners who spent 



$2,476,000 for ducats. In all, fans expended 
some $17 million for ticket purchases, trans- 
portation, food, entertainment, overnight stays 
and other miscellaneous items. Total financial 
output from the World Series alone was an 
estimated $5 million. 

Based on a F«'deral Reserve Bank 
formula, that carh dollar spent changes 
hands on an average of 29 times, (with- 
drawals and time deposits), more than

Chamber Directors Vote Support 
hr Anti' Sunday- Selling Measure 

State Senate Bill 845, which, if passed, would make it a misdemeanor for anv 
rson to sell ' non-essential articles*' in "specified areas of the state" on Sundays, 
« Ijeen voted support hy the Chamber hoard of directors, according to Harrv A 
e, Chamber president. 

Board action followed the recommendation of the San Francisco Retail Mer- 

ints Association, of which Jack Podesta of

rhe Senate bill, authored by Senators 
eph Rattigan (Santa Rosa) and Hugh M. 
rns (Fresno), would aflect the Sunday 
?s of clotliing. accessories, furniture, ap- 
inces, televisions, radios, cameras, jewelry, 
omohiles. and other goods not considered 
•ntial to puhlic health and safety, 
sot affected hy the proposed law would be 
gs. gasoline and automobile supplies, food. 
I estate, newspapers, souvenirs and novel- 

and items used primarily for recreational 
poses sold in recreational areas, 
'he three objectives j)riniarily sought in 

hill, according to the Retail Merchants 
ociation. are: 

"To secure for hundreds of thousands of 
ifornians employed in retailing and allied 
Is the privilege of home life, friendly a.s- 



sociation and community participation; 

• "To prevent thousands of small shop- 
keepers and large merchants from being 
driven into Sunday business slavery; 

• "To protect the state and its communi- 
ties from the moral, social and economic 
damage caused by Sunday selling." 

The Rattigan-Burns Bill also is supported 
by the California Retailers Association, the 
Retail Dry Goods Association and the San 
Francisco Council of District Merchants As- 
sociations. 

Coordinating the campaign for passage of 
the measure is the Californians Against Com- 
mercializing Sunday Committee of which 
Krnest I.. Molloy, president of Macy's. is 
area chairman. Area Three, of which the Bay 
Area is a i)arl.

S. F. Giants — 

(Continued front page one) 

S 49.3 million dollars turned over during 
the '62 season as a financial result of 
all 86 home games — including 81 
regular season games, one playoff game 
and four series games. 

"It is obvious that increased attendance i^ 
of great benefit to the local economy." said 
G. L. Fox. executive vice president of the San 
Francisco Chamber of Commerce. 

"The Chamber, with the cooperation of all 
Northern California chambers of commerce, 
has done its best to deepen interest in the 
Giants since their arrival here in 19.S8. 

"It also is significant that 50 per cent 
of the fans were from out of town last 
year, contrasted with 20 per cent the 
previous year. 

"The Giants have obviously entrenched 
themselves in the minds of all northern Cali- 
fornians as a great ball club. 

"The San Francisco Chamber, keenly 
aware of the intercounty and intercom- 
munity cooperation which exists be- 
tween the city and all northern Cali- 
fornia communities on all economic 
levels, is happy that the local and re- 
gional economies, as well as the cofifers 
of the Giants, have been enriched. 
"What is good for the Giants is good for 
the San Francisco Bay Area. What is good for 
the -Area is good for the Giants."

create a desire to visit the scene painted. We

Some 5,000 trees were planted as a result of Plant-a-Tree \V eek, wliich ended

of the event with the (Chamber and San Francisco Beautiful,

and ap[)lirati()ns for trt'e-planting. " Fewer 
said. 

"The as!;istanfe of downtown busi- 
ness and finanriai oi-Kanizations and 
firms has exerte<J a gr«'al influence on 
thj> program," he continued. "We now 
feel that the uhiniate goal of 350,000 
street tree plantings, which at one lime 
looked like an impossibility, will be 
achievefl within the next seven years. 
■Considering that these plantings have been 
done largely by individual citizens, neighbor- 
hood associations, and business firms on a 
voluntary, pay-f or-it-yourself basis, the 
achievement thus far is extremely remark- 
able." 

Among the larger projects in business dis- 
tricts and neighborhoods were: 

• Crocker-Anglo National Bank. Dean Wit- 
ter & Co., and Post Street Merchants — 3.5 to 
50 trees at Post and Montgomery;

Chamber Moves to Coordinate 
South'O ^'Market Development 

( I'ublirity on the development of the South-o'-Markel area received front pa^e, eight-column 
banner treatment from all the local daily newspapers. .Among the articles written icas this 
excellent treatment of the subject by Charles F. Ayres, Associate Editor of the Daily Com- 
mercial l\ews.) 

By Charles F. Ayres, Associate E}<lilor 

San Francisco Daily Commercial ISetvs 

The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce yesterday hopefully assumed the role 
of '"coordinator" in anticipated efforts to redevelop the South of Market area. 

The action was taken followinjj; an open discussion hv six persons who were 
joined by (juite a few others in the audience in room 200 of the Chamher huildinp 
in which the potentials, the problems, current construction, plannin<r and Ion<i- 
range thinking all were explored. 

The event was chaired by Randell Larson, 
chairman of the Chamber's redevelopment co- 
ordination committee, and was staged with the 
cooperation of the capital improvement and 
land use section (Norman Impelman, chair- 
man) and the industrial development section 
(Ralph W. Seely, chairman). 

'Coordinated Effort' 

The Chamber's role, Larson suggested at 
the outset, should probably be the effecting of 
a coordinated effort, avoidance of overlapping 
efiforts. and "at all times to see that private 
enterprise has its proper place in the develop- 
ment area." 

Ernest Locher, assistant vice president. 
United California Bank, disclosed that his 
bank already has applied for authority to put 
a branch in the area, has its eye on a site 
somewhere in the area bounded by Bryant. 
Brannan. Fifth and Sixth streets, and is ready 
to go as soon as authority is received. 

The banker, expressing strong faith in the 
comeback potential of the area, noted that 
larger lots at reasonable prices should be 
made available to attract new business and 
payroll. 

'.\orth-o-Market' 

Impelman. who is an investment and real 
estate broker, offered the somewhat differing 
view that "the north of Market area" must be 
considered in overall planning. In this area, 
he reminded, "thousands and thousands of 
units of housing for single people are fast de- 
pleting in value" and eventually must be re- 
placed if a readily available labor force is to 
be assured industry which might enter the 
South of Market area. 

He suggested that the South of Market area 
in the Haight-Guerrero region might eventual- 
ly |)rove a good project area for housing for 
single persons making up new industry's work 
force.

THR0LI(;H the looking (;LASS — The 

shape of things to come is mirrored in the win- 
dows of Ihmk of Americu\s newest San Francisco 
branch which opened for business last month. 
Located opposite the site of the Hilton Hotel, 
tvhich is scheduled for completion late this year, 
the Ellis-Taylor office is the bank's 56th branch 
in San Francisco. Reflecting the renascence of 
an area once known as San Fr(mcisco's "I'ptown 
Tenderloin." the branch and the Hilton Hotel 
are two of several new construction projects be- 
gun recently.

ficulty in expressing his employer's faith in 
the area. The new headcpiarters, he said, are 
expected "to become the nucleus of a well- 
planned development in the surrounding 
area."

Blessings of S. F. Bay Area 
Counted in Economic Survey 

The 1963 Economic Survey of the Chamber is now available, according to 
Stanley C. Allen, Chamber research department manager. 

The survey is a review in depth of the economy of the nine-county, 6,989 
square-mile Bay Area. Its detailed study is based on all factors which contribute 
to the growth of the Bay Area, including the '"moderate, Mediterranean -type 
climate" where daily mean maximum tempera- 



tures range from 62.8 degrees in San Francis- 
co to 72.7 in Sacramento. (Daily mean mini- 
mums range from 46.7 in Oakland to 50.9 in 
San Francisco.) 

Other factors contributing to econom- 
ic and population growth in the area, 
the survey says, are: 

• *'A geographical location central to 
controlling markets and resources of the 
West; 

• "Abundant water and power sup- 
plies; 

• ''Highly skilled labor force; 

• "Presence of at least 20 colleges and 
universities, including two of the world^s 
greatest; and over five hundred research 
facilities of industry, schools, govern- 
ment and private institutions; 

• "One of the world's finest harbors, 
with deep water ports inland as far as 
Sacramento and Stockton; 

• "A constant influx of new residents, 
and 

• "Nearly one thousand new or ex- 
panded manufacturing industry projects 
annually.'' 

In some areas covered by the survey, a 13- 
county Bay Region definition is used, adding 
Sacramento, San Joaquin, Yolo and Santa 
Cruz counties to the basic counties under con- 
sideration which include San Francisco, San 
Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, Contra Costa, 
Marin, Sonoma, Napa and Solano counties. 

In the expanded 13-county region, %2 
manufacturing projects were announced in 
1961. They had a total valuation of $170,378,- 
000. 

Bay Area retail sales increased 29.7 per 
cent between 1950 and 1960. the survey said. 
Wholesale sales increased 39.1 per cent in the 
same period and salaries were increased by 
62.5 per cent. 



Chamiter Tree-Selling 
Project Huge Succc^ss, 
5,000 Fruit Trees Go 

Some 5,000 flowering fruit trees — donated 
by the California Nursery Company of Free- 
mont to the Chamber street tree-planting pro- 
gram — were sold at a bargain rate of 25 
cents each last weekend at the City Hall plaza 
and Kezar Pavilion parking lot. 

The trees, distributed from huge vans 
through the cooperation of the Chamber, the 
Department of Public Works, San Francisco 
Beautiful, Recreation and Park Commission, 
and the San Francisco Police Department, 
were sold out by 1 p.m. Friday. 

Average cost of such trees, if purchased 
from a nursery, is about $5 each, according 
to George C. Roeding, Jr., president of Cali- 
fornia Nursery. 

During the past four years, the Chamber, 
the Department of Public Works, and San 
Francisco Beautiful have seen some 30,000 
trees planted throughout the central busi- 
ness district and the city's outlying neigh- 
borhoods — including a record 5,000 for the 
recent Plant-a-Tree Week. Ultimate goal of 
the continuing campaign is some 350.000 
plantings.

'Pens Dipped^ Ledgers Flipped^ 
Fireiiian'is Fund IVow 100 Years Old 

Fireman's Fund Insurance Company, which celchrated its centennial 
May 6, began doing business in the old Government House at Sansonie and 
Washington Streets with "pens dipping and ledgers flipping" in three dark 
rooms above a dingy staircase. 

This year Fireman's Fund reached its biggest milestone by affiliating with 
the American Insurance Company to rise to a 
position of major imporlancc in the i)roperty- 
casualty insurance world with combined assets of 
$1 billion. 

During the past century millions of custom- 
ers from all over the country have trod the path 
to the agents of Fireman's Fund — whose home 
ofticc remains to this day in San Francisco. 

In contrast to its first transaction — the insur- 
ing of a thousand fiv<'-gallon kegs of Hoston 
-vrup for Sl,2()0 -the company now writes a 
iiiuitiludc of multimillion-dollar coverages as 
well its coverage for the ordinary citizen's prop- 
.rty. 

One of the oldest trademarks of the com- 
|)any, then the Home Fire and Marine Insurance 

Company, was a picture of a painting of a full-rigged ship (see cut) hy San 
Francisco miivinc artist W. A. (Soulier. 

The ship, named after W. F. liabcock, president of the Chamber five 

times (1874-70 ind 1880-83), also was used as a design for a 21-cent stamp.

Goal of 100,000 
Is Set for '63 
Car Chockdoivii 

Goal of this year's voluntary vehicle safety 
check, to be conducted on a citywide basis 
May 15-17, will be no less than 100.000 
vehicles, according to Clifford M. Luster, divi- 
sion plant safety supervisor of the Pacific 
Telephone and Telegraph Company and ^in- 
eral chairman of the event. 

Check lanes will be located on Bay Street 
between Webster and Buchanan; Geary Boule- 
vard between Scott and Steiner Streets; Ma- 
sonic Avenue between Oak and Fell Street-: 
Golden Gate Park Panhandle: Sunset Circle, 
end of Sunset Boulevard off Sloat Boulevard; 
Balboa Reservoir on Phelan Avenue; Harri- 
son Street between 25th and 26th Streets; and 
underneath the skyway at 13th Street and 
South Van Ness Avenue. 

Last year, the Chamber, which spearheailt d 
the drive through its traffic safety and control 
section, won the award of excellence for citiis 
of more than 300,000 population throughnut 
the nation. The award was based on the nimi- 
ber of vehicles (100,000) passing thnnmh 
check lanes and the public presentation of 
the campaign. In 1961 the San Francisco cam- 
paign won the overall Certificate of Excel- 
lence, topping all other cities, large and small. 
This year more than 175,000 folders, detail- 
ing the location of seven check lanes, were 
distributed by the Chamber to public, paro- 
chial and private schools, the motor vehicles 
license bureau, traffic courts, local, state and 
federal governmental agencies, all branches of 
the military services, automobile dealers, truck 
fleet operators, service stations and insurance 
companies. 

CHAMBER BIRTHDAY 

(Continued front page one) 

Chamber was Samuel Brannan, leader of the 
1846 Mormon immigration to San Francisco, 
who started the city's first newspaper, the 
California Star. 

Later, at a meeting in the Merchants' Kx- 
change Building, May 9, 1850, William Hoop- 
er, city treasurer and collector in 1846, who 
led a sweeping reform to "purify City Hall 
from partisan trickery," (according to the his- 
torian Bancroft) was named the first Chamber 
president. 

One of the greatest of a great line of Cliam- 
her presidents was William Tell Coleman, the 
"Lion of the Vigilantes" wiio headed the Vigi- 
lance Committees of 1851, 1856 and 1877— 
described as "the most heroic figure in Cali- 
fornia history" by Rockwell D. Hunt in liis 
California's Stately Hall of Fame. 

Josiah Royce, one of America's greatest 
philosophers, noted the role i)laye(l by the 
Chamber in stabilizing law and order in ."^an 
Francisco in his book, California: 

"Businessmen chose to enlist their services 
in the cause of good order by choosing the 
only alternative — they avoided mob law, pure 
and simply, only by organizing the most re- 
markable of all popular tribunals, the Vigi- 
lance Committee, whereby was effected that

San Francisco — Gateway to World Trade | 

San Francisco, Hlrat«>jiically located on a 456-s(iuarc-niilc landlocked 1 
harbor, is widely recojinized as the leadinji international trade cenl«'r on ■ 
the Pacific ('oast and the key to the vast west<'rn I nited States market. 1 

The San Francisco (Instonis District handles imports an<l exports in 1 
excess of SI. 3 billion a year, the Chamber reports. 1 

Surroundin<i San Francisco Bay is a 10,J{17-s<inare-mih' area known ■ 
as the 13-county Bay Re«iion. V\ ith a population ol nearly ."> million it is i 
the richest, most «liversified and most significant market in the western g 
I nited States, and one of tlu' most important in the nation. 1 

-Approximately 2.300 San Francisco firms ar<' eniiajicd in international J 
trade. The firms deal in virtually all commo<lities an<l all markets. m 

Thousands of in<lustrial and agricultural products pro<luced in the ■ 
Bay Area and northern California are distributed to markets all over J 
the world. | 

AI)out 85 per cent of San Francisco's exports fall into the classifica- M 
tions of (1) food products, (2) chemicals and pharmaceuticals, and | 
(3) industrial and electrical machinery and equipment. In specific com- S 
modifies, raw cotton leads, machinery, petroleum products, dried fruit, S 
rice, grains, iron an<l steel, canned fruit, automobiles, trucks and parts, | 
and iron ore are also important export items. M 

The bulk of the city's imports are foodstuffs and basic raw materials | 
to service American in<lu8try. Coffee leads, with raw wool, non ferrous S 
ores, copra, newsprint paper and other major import items foll(»uing. g 
Crude petroleum, jute and burlap, crude rubber, inedible animal pro<luct8 | 
an<l, finally, fresh and canned fish are among our essential imports. g 

San Francisco is headcjuarters for 52 foreign government consulates g 
with whom the Chamber cooperates. San Francisco is also the district J 
and regional headquarters for many federal agencies of the United States g 
and the hea<lcjuarter8 for some of the largest corporations in the nation, g 

The Port of San Francisco is a hundred-million-dollar pid)lic utility g 
which meets every possible shipping requirement. It also encompasses g 
an 18-mile stretch of ship berthing space, 229 acres of covereil and open g 
wharf areas, and a total of 43 piers. Here the largest ships in the world g 
are accommodated. B 

The port's general cargo piers are mostly of the one-story finger type, m 
ranging in length from 500 to 1,300 feet, an<l in width from 15 to 300 g 
feet — each side capable, in most cases, of berthing two vessels, anti in g 
every instance providing railroad spur tracks along the aprons. g 

More than 100 shipping lines regularly pass through the (iolden Gate = 
and more than 200 steamship companies have offices or agencies here, g 
Five international shipping companies have their home oflice in San g 
Francisco. In 1961, more than 10 million short tons of foreign imports 1 
and exp<>rls were handled by .San PVancisco Bay's ports and harbors. g 

The city it.self is mature ami urbane, a cidtural and educational cen- g 
ter famed for gracious living. Since practi<'ally every race* in tlu' world g 
is re|»resented in its approximately 775.000 population. San Francisco g 
has an international flavor unique in the Cnited .States. g 

Concentrated in San Francisc(» alone are tremendous regional supply H 
bases and production and management head<|uarters f<»r big commeri-ial g 
enterprises. W (>rld-wi<le operations are conducted from hundreds of g 
business manag<'ment head<|uarters in the city. B 

.San Francisco is served directly by four Class I railroads operating g 

more than 27,000 mih's <)f lines, mor<' than 100 couimon «'arrier truck m 

lines and bus lines radiating to all points of the nation. g

Full Calendar of Events Climaxes 
Sacramento Valley Days Festivity 

Valley Days — saluting the great Sacramento Valley — in this, its 14th year, 
reaches its climax today. 

The event is sponsored hy the San Francisco hiisiness community and coordi- 
nated hy the Chamher intercity section, of which F. T. Garesche is chairman. 

On today's agenda is a S600 million construction tour of San Francisco followed 

by a tour of the San Francisco Naval Ship- 




Paul Bissinger 



yard. 

Paul Bissinger, general chairman of this 
year's Valley Days and 
1950 Chamber president, 
will address some 200 
businessmen, ranchers, 
growers and civic lead- 
ers at a luncheon at the 
Naval Shipyard at 12:30 
p.m. A cruise on San 
Francisco Bay by the 
Great Golden Fleet, of 
which Dan E. London, 
Managing Director of

breakfast" at the St. Francis Hotel, industrial 
tours, and the San Francisco Giants-Chicago 
Cubs baseball game at Candlestick Park, fol- 
lowed by a reception at the World Trade Club 
for guests and their wives. 

"San Francisco — the Gateway to the poten- 
tially vast market of the Pacific Basin, and its 
northern California neighbors, particularly in 
the great Sacramento Valley — have common 
goals of a very compelling nature," Bissinger 
pointed out. "And each year, for that reason. 
Valley Days is becoming an event of increas- 
ing significance. 

"Thus Valley Days, signalling a declaration 
of interdependence between San Francisco and 
its neighboring communities and counties, is 
an important element in the shape of things 
to come." 



Cliarles Ayres IVeiv 
Publicity Department 
Assistant Manager 

Charles F. Ayres, associate editor of the San 
Francisco Daily Commercial News and a vet- 
eran newsi)aper reporter, has been appointed 
assistant manager of the Chamber publicity 
department, according to G. L. Fox, executive 
vice president. 

Purpose of the Cham- 
ber publicity depart- 
ment, of which Joseph 1. 
Haughey is manager, is 
to publicize the City and 
County of San Francisco 
and its economic and 
cultural development on 
local, national and inter- 
national levels for the 
benefit of local business, 
and to keep the public 
informed of the multiple v,^ 

aims, actions and goals ^ 
of the Chamber itself. (Jiarles t . Ayres 

Ayres was associate editor of the Daily 
Commercial News for the past three years. He 
also operated the night city desk of the San 
Francisco Call-Bulletin prior to its merger 
with the San Francisco News in 1959. He 
began his career with the San Francisco 
Chronicle in 1943, has worked on the San 
Francisco Examiner sports desk, and was Sun- 
day editor of the /^ocA/or*/ (Illinois) Morning

Re-Enactment of 63-33 Bill Urged by Chamber 



Legislation now before Congress to continue 
the present 65-35 percentage split of repair 
and conversion work between Navy and pri- 
vate enterprise shipyards has been voted unan- 
imous support by the board of directors of the 
Chamber. 

Action of the Chamber board resulted after 
recommendation of the Chamber shipbuild- 
ing and ship repair committee, of which Wil- 
liam B. Swan, manager. San Francisco marine 
and defense facilities sales, General Electric 
Company, is chairman. 



In seeking Chamber support of "definite 
re-enactment" of the bill. Swan urged that the 
action of the Chamber board "be immediately 
brought to the attention of the defense appro- 
priations subcommittee, the .Secretary of the 
Navy, each California congressman and others 
concerned." 

"It is fully agreed by the Chamber ship- 
Ijuilding and ship re|)air committee that the 
San Prancisco Naval Shi|)yard is a much need- 
ed factor in the local economy,"' Swan contin- 
ued. 



"However, private and commercial yards are 
not getting their fair share of naval ship repair 
work as provided for in the 65-35 formula. 
Nevertheless, the committee feels that the re- 
enactment of the provision would help to en- 
sure an equitable distribution of naval ship 
repair work among local private yards, which 
it has been proved are capable of doing such 
repair work more economically than the 
Navy."

THE SHIPSTADS & JOHNSON ICE FOLLIES, npenini; their 19(>3 series at W^interhmd 
on W ednesday (June 19), has become (mother San Francisco tradition of seasonal festivity. 
And while the Follies obviously brighten up the city's entertainment front, less evident to 
the public is the fact that such sparkling shotvs mean good business for San Francisco. It is 
estimated that approximately 250.000 tourists from Idaho. Oregon, Nevada, Washington and 
California will attend the show this year — pouring an estimated $200 million into the city's 
financial coffers. The Ice Follies, family entertainment in the finest sense, involves presently 
250 employees and has played to nearly 58 million spectators since 1939. 



Chamber Publishes 
Steamship Directory 

Some 170 steamship companies with offices 
or agencies in San Francisco are listed in a

Seventy-nine companies listed in the 69-page

San Franciscana 

Stern Grove — 'I^ature's Ulusic Box' 

Within San Francisco's city confines there are 63 spectacular acres of 
forest and field known as Sipmund Stern Grove. A green and wooded ravine, 
today this retreat, just steps away from the city's hustle, is truly a picnickers' 
Eden — lost to the husy world of affairs among towering Eucalvptus trees 
planted more than 100 years ago hy the land's first homesteader, George 
Greene, a New England horticulturist who came around the Horn in 1847. 

An original gift to the people of San Francisco I 12 acres I hv Mrs. Sig- 
mund Stern in 1931, as a memorial to her hushand, it was enlarged hy further 
acquisitions over the years. Today the Grove, together with adjoining Pine 
Lake land, totals 63 acres. 

Sigmund Stern Grove hecornes especially festive during the summer 
months when the Stem Grove Festival Association annually stages a series 
of rich and varied Sunday afternoon concerts — ranging from hit Broadway 
musicals and hand concerts through operetta, opera, sjTnphony and hallet - 
often with world renowned artists. 




ACRES OF VERDANT FORESTS WITHIN THE CITY 

. . . and San Franciscans pile up like pine-cones 

T\\\s midsummer music festival has hecome a unique San Francisco 
■'hahit" which attracts an average attendance of 15,000 persons at a single 
Sunday concert. There are a nuiid)er of compelling reasons for its popularity 
— the performances are unifonnly excellent, the natural amphitheater, formed 
hy ravine and towering trees, enhances the music, and — there is no charge. 

Verdant Stern (irove, with its tradition of family fun and musical excel- 
lence, has heen variously called "Nature's Music Box" (San Francisco Aeic.s, 
July, 1952), "Music's Summer Capital" (San Francisco Chronicle. July. 19481, 
and '"a spot which, perhaps among all others, is most San Francisco in its 
appearance, history and culture" (KCBS hroadcast script, July, 1953). 

And, indeed, there is quite a hit of San Francisco history enshrined in 
the Grove hegiiming with the trees planted there hy the Greenes, and also 
the Troeadero Inn. The Trocadero, a gahled, gingerhread dream, is used for 
recreational |)urposes during winter months. Bullet marks are neatly pre- 
served, in its front door and hall stairs. One story has it that they were made 
hy a jealous lover dining the 1890\s, wh<'n it was a popular resort. Another 
attrihutes them to the time the colorful, if infamous, ''city hoss," Ahe Ruef, 
hid out at the Froc in 1907 when his political machine was smashed. 

In modern times, the area has hecome a green and flowering musical 
countryside peacefully end)raced in the amis of a great city.

WORLD TRADE FAIR !$ET HERE 

Chiunher Sponsors International Event 

San Francisco will host the seventh United States World Trade Fair September 10-20 of 
next year under the auspices of the City and County of San Francisco and the San Francisco 
Chamber of Commerce. Cooperating in this major event will be the state of California and the 
United States Government, including the Departments of State. Commerce and Treasury. 

Purpose of the U.S. X'i Orld Trade Fair — the first time it is being held outside of New York 
City — is "to create an international market on the West Coast of the United States for the exhi- 
bition, promotion and volume sale of products and services to the American trade and public in 
order to foster world trade and tourism," according to William J. Wilkin, director of the Trade 
Fair San Francisco Office. 

"The Chamber, under G. L. Fox, executive vice president, and James P. Wilson, manager 
of its world trade department, played a key role in making the U.S. World Trade Fair San 
Francisco showing a reality." he added. 

The Civic Auditorium - Brooks Hall complex — now undergoing a $7V2 million renovation 
program — will be the scene of the Trade Fair. When it is completed, San Francisco will have 
one of the most modern and l)est-e(|uipped exposition halls in the United States. Completely air- 
conditioned, the facility will have a total area of about 250.000 square feet. 

The U. S. World Trade Fair is the only exposition in North America ever admitted to the 
Union (Irs Foires Intcrnationdlrs, governing body of the world's foremost international fairs. 

"Thus .San Francisco will host North America's counterpart of the great trade fairs of the 
world." \\ iikin commented. 



Anti-€lianiber Rill 
Draws ^o Applause 
From This Corner 

The board of directors of the Chainbn 
voted unequivocal opposition to Assembly Bill 
2571, which would prohibit city and county 
legislative bodies from contracting with pri- 
vate organizations for community promotional 
and advertising work, according to G. L. Fox. 
Chamber executive vice president. 

The bill would add a section to the Govern- 
ment Code and i)rohibit a county board of 
supervisors or city council from contracting 
with a chamber of commerce or board of trade 
to advertise the county or city, and prohibit 
use of public money for advertising by such 
organizations. 

"Persons throughout tlie world recognize 
chambers of commerce as the authentic 
sources of information about the communities 
in which they are located," Fox commented. 
"Consequently, they perform many semi- 
public services." 

Fox emphasized that "the proposed legisla- 
tion would be contrary to another long-stand- 
ing policy of the Chamber whereby it has 
favored vesting all possible authority at the 
level of government closest to the people. 

"In other words," he explained, "if a city 
or county desires to participate in advertising 
through private organizations, the local legis- 
lative body should have the authority to make 
its own decisi(»ns and not be subject to dicta- 
lion l)v the state." 



SCnOOL DISTRICT TAX BILL REJECTED BY CHAMBER 



The (Jhambcr ha- aiiiiouiict d llii> week it.-, 
o|)position to a number of school allocation 
bills in the State Legislature which would 
< 'lualize state taxes among school districts by 
taking from "rich" industrial districts and 
liiving to "poor" districts. 

Under definition of the bills, it was noted 
by G. L. Fox. Chamber executive vice presi- 
drnt, high-income residential areas, such as 



Hillsborough, Alliertcm and Urinda, would be 
"poor" districts because "virtually no industry 
exists in these communities to provide school 
tax revenues." 

Conversely, highly industrialized districts 
wherein average incomes may be low would 
be classified as "rich." 

"While San Francisco would not be affect- 
ed, because there is only one school district in 



this county, the Chamber board of directors 
took a stand on the side of simple justice," 
Fox explained. 

These school allocation bills (the main ones 
are A.B. 1000 and A.B. 888) would pool the 
total as.sessed value of a county among the 
school districts within that county just as if 
the physical locations of the industrial plants 
were evenly distributed.

CALIFORNIA'S OLDEST fact-finding agency, 
the Division of Labor Statistics and Research, is 
honored this week for 80 years of service in 
measuring the state's social and economic prog- 
ress. Established in 1883 on a wave of concern 
over the plight of "the working class," the 
agency has chronicled the spectacular gro^vth of 
both population and the labor force in the state 
during the 80 years. Population climbed from 
less than a million to more than 17 million, 
the labor force from less than one-half million 
to more than 6V2 million. The 8()th anniversary 
of the oldest division of the California Depart- 
ment of Industrial Relations was duly noted 
this week during the Interstate Conference on 
Labor Statistics ending today in the Bellevue 
Hotel, San Francisco. . . . 

PROPOSED MERGER of Crocker-Anglo Na- 
tional Bank and the Citizens National Bank of 
Los Angeles has been api)roved b> shareholders 
of both banks. Merger, forming Crocker-Citizens 
National Bank which would serve more than a 
million depositors, awaits approval of the 
Comptroller of Currency. . . .

"'^Project Missionaire* 

Program for Retired Citizens in High Gear 

Suooessful retirement for senior citizens — a problem for companies 
as MvM as employees — is a continuing difficulty for all concerned in our 
complex society. 

San Francisco's Mission district, experimentin«i with formulas to solve 
these complexities — "Project Missionaire" — is pioneering in this field. 
Financed through a grant from the San Francisco Foundation — "Project 
Missionaire," in its first year of existence, placed more than 100 men and 
women over the age of 50 in interesting and personally-rewarding com- 
munity service jobs. 

Sponsors claim retired men and women, and others who will be 
retiring within the next few years, are finding the project "appealing and 
irresistible." They note the "Project Missionaire" is "a radical departure 
from the usual volunteer placement program of community health and 
welfare agencies" and, that it has attracted the interest of company per- 
sonnel departments, medical directors and top management throughout 
San Francisco. 

A "streamlined" formula of screening and placement is the key to 
its success. The emphasis is on an individuaPs skill an<l interests, with 
regard to the fact that there must be no excessive demand on the retiree's 
time, energy and resources. 

Interested in<lividuals are encouraged to contact a representative al 
the company where they work or at the Project's main office, 362 Capp 
Street. 

The personal interview is always arranged at the convenience of the 
ap|>licant. 

IJecause this is a program that attempts to provide the retired person 
with meaningful and rewarding a<tivily an<l to make available to the 
comniunity a p<K>l of skilled man|>ower (often measured as "mind- 
power") — the emphasis is on the aiiitlicant's free choice. Thus, each 
selects the day and hours and frequency of assignment. Assignments vary 
from a few hours a mtnith up to as mu<h as five hours every working 
day. The jobs themselves (and there are 200 to choose from) vary from 
the semi-skille<l and technical to policy-making anti consultive assign- 
ments. 

The program is sponsored by the United Community Fund, along 
with other civic groups. 



1963 Contact Clulb 
Formed; Members 
Convene Wednesday 

Formation of the 1963 '"Contact Club" to 
solicit memberships in the Chamber has been 
announced by Chamber officials. 

Herbert H. Harmon, manager of the Cham- 
ber membership department, noted the first 
regular meeting of the 1963 '"Contact Club" 
will be held Wednesday, 10 a.m., in tlie John 
Hancock Building's third floor Signature 
Room. 

The "club" is comprised of young execu- 
tives who will be carrying the Chamber mes- 
sage to the business community, it was ex- 
plained by William J. Bird, western vice presi- 
dent of John Hancock Mutual Life Insurance 
Company and chairman of the Chaml)er mem- 
bership committee. 

The image of the Chamber as "an organiza- 
tion of men and women who know the wisdom 
of working together ... to build the commer- 
cial, industrial and civic factors of the com- 
munity in order to enhance the total economy" 
will be vigorously promoted, Bird said. 

Both Bird and Harmon said the club's rolls 
are by no means closed and invited executives 
"young in spirit — 25 to 60" to join the 1963 
"Contact Club." 

Sales aids are provided by means of fre- 
quent club meetings, they noted, and incen- 
tives include trophies, cash awards, luncheons, 
l)arties and trips.

San Franciscana 

Teasjardeii — A Tf^iieli €»£ Old Japan 

HaJ Gill>ert and Sullivan'.* niythical "waiuleriiifi iniiistrcr' JtiM'ii an actual 
prince of Japan, and had he wandered far. he iuif:ht have found a visual 
"echo" of his i.^land empire in a new land. In actual fact, it was a Japanese 
lahorer, Makoto Hajiiwara, whose talented hands gave to San Francisco's 
Golden Gate Park a wayward ineinorv' of old Japan which exists in all it> 
charm today, a sure attraction for tourists and a con- 
stant source of delighted amazement to visitors from 
Japan. 

The Japanese Tea Garden was, indeed, the ver- 
dant "song" of a "wandering minstrel'' whose handi- 
work in the lat<> 189()s was warmly rewarded hy the 
Park Commission in 1910. Hagiwara was given super- 
vision over the concession (first known as the Japanese 
Village I and his children continued its operation until 
1942 when wartime relocation of Japanese families 
ended the "dynasty." 

1'he Tea (iarden saw its Itirlh in 1893, a feature 
of the famous (California Mid-Winter Exposition 

which opened in January. 1894. The exposition was an effort to fa< ilitatc a 
husiness revival after 18 of the city's hanks closed during a nationwide depres- 
sion. One of the exposition's hackers was Australian George Turner Marsh, 
who had opened America's first art goods store in the arcade of the old Palace 
Hotel in 1873. 

The Japanese Village was created with the advice of Marsh's good friend, 
San Francisco's great, creative park superintendent. John McLaren. 

The Tea Garden is entered through a tall, arched gateway comprised of 
hundreds of hand-carved pieces t)f wood. It.s famous rock garden has heen 
created primarily of stones shipped directly from Japan. Each stone has a 
synd)olic meaning, representing an imaginary mountain or similar ohject of 
nature. 

Shortly after the end of World War II, Japan sent a peace lantern to San 
Francisco. This lantern now graces the Tea Garden. 

Among the many other features are a moon bridge, a model Japanese 
dwelling, a gigantic bronze Buddha (said to be the largest ever to leave the 
Orient), a multiple-tiered temple and picturesque gateways. In the area for- 
tnerly occupied by the homes of the Hagiwara family is a broad terrace over- 
looking a sunken garden with a series of pools and a lush planting of dwarf 
maples, azaleas and conifers against a backdrop of bamboo. 

The variety of plants includes Japanese cherries, specimens of the famed 
Magnolia Campbellii and a very old Magnolia Soulangeana which flowers heav- 
ily. There also are many varieties of Chinese rhododendrons, azaleas, maples, 
bamboos, pines and other conifers. Contributing boldly to the scene are spc<i- 
ments of the Aralia Sieboldii and Papyrifera. 

The shrubs and trees are especially pnined. Even the mature 4()-foot pines 
have been carefully thinned and pruned. Every single hrancliJet — of which 
there are many thousands — has been individuallv hand pruned. Adding tt) 
this zigzag pattern of Oriental ganbuiiiig are trimmed hedges of evergrc<>n 
baiid>oo. 

The garden combines the concepts of a landscape style popular during the 
Muromachi Era 5,000 or so years ago and of the Impressionist School ( 1534- 
1565).

DOIV'T Cut Yonr IVo$«c Off to Spite Your Face 

The proposal to split the San Francisco-Oakland Metropolitan Area is 
(lecidetUy and uncontrovertahly against the hasic welfare of the entire Bay 
Area coniniunity. 

Cutting in twain the unity of the Bay Area's central six counties would he 
as disastrous as it would have heen if Solomon had actually carried out his 
threat to slice in half the Bihlical hahy. 

The San Francisco-Oakland Metropolitan Area (the counties of Alameda, 
Contra Costa. San Francisco, San Mateo, Marin and Solano) now ranks sixth 
nationally in economic wealth: to set up a separate metropolitan area comprised 
of the counties of Alameda and Contra Costa with Solano going it alone in 
opposition to the counties of San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin, would he to 
relegate the San Francisco metropolitan area to 14th, the proposed Fast Bay 
Area to 16th. The result: a plummeting of the market strength and economic 
|)restige of hoth. 

Based upon the undeniahle fact that the San Francisco Bay Area's counties 
are economically and geographically interdependent, the husiness community 
of San Francisco recognizes the imperative need to preserve its existing unit v. 

The San Francisco-Oakland Metropolitan Area is the economic huh arouiul 
which revolves the spokes com])rising northern (lalifornia's 48 counties. Major 
manufacturing and hranch operations of northern California in general and the 
San Francisco Bay Region in particular are directed out of San Francisco head- 
quarter officer, the city also heing one of the nation's most financial centers. 

if the Bay Area is to continue to progress dynamically, the honds of 
economic unity should he tightened and strengthened — not loosened an<l untied.

First Half Bank Figures Paint 
Bright San Francisco Picture 

San Fraiu-isco's l)ank!; toted up the results this past week for the first half of 
1963 and the a<ij:regate of totals maintained the hrijiht picture of a strong and 
steadily growing economy. 

Whether it was the world's largest — Bank of America — or one of the city's 
newest — Golden Gate National Bank — the conclusions all ran to the sunny side of 
the street. The figures varied, of course, ac- 
cording to the size of the institution, but they 
all tended to similar interpretation — the econ- 
omy of San Francisco is a thing of dynamic 
vitality. 



Nine reporting banks tallied net earn- 
ings for the period for a grand total of 
S7.3.4-63.696 — ranging all the way from 
the big Bank of America's $42,559,398 
to the new Golden Gate NationaPs S223,- 
199. 
I The nine banks covered in this report are 
Bank of America. Bank of California. Crocker- 
Anglo. First \\ estern. Goklen Gate. Hibernia. 
Pacific National. United California, and \^ ells 
Fargo. 

All nine banks reported significant increases 
in deposits. Their total count in the column 
was S21.824.472.506 approximately. The cu- 
mulative gain over the total a year earlier was 
just about §1,724.930,396, a shade under a 
bealthy 8 per cent growth ratio. 

The general details were the same for loans, 
which increased better than 12 per cent for the 
nine in the aggregate, from $12,046,064,363 at 
he end of June. 1962, to $13,714,375,499 as of 
rune 30. 1963. 

Bank of America's outstanding loans 
as of June .30 this year reached $7,857,- 
85.3. Bank of (California total for loans 
and discounts was $432,282,947. Pacific 
National Bank scored it $114,074,111. 

United California Bank reported $1,619.- 
108,208 in loans. The Hibernia Bank's figure: 
J137.894.769. Wells Far go's loan volume 
dimbed to Sl.876.431.665. 

Crocker-.-Vnglo loans, less reserves, stood at 
11,299.027.883. First Western's loan total was 
1357,129,000. 

Golden Gate National Bank, barely two 
fears old at the half, saw loan volume rise in 

year from $11,184,325 to $20,603,163— a 
topping increase of almost 46 per cent.

San Franciscana 

Reliving the Lusty Days Out West 

During the 1860s. James Wales Miller saved a S3(),()()() payroll shipment 
from handits and his grateful employer — Wells, Fargo & Co. — awarded hin> 
a fine watch encased in two pounds of Nevada silver. Miller wore it proudly 
for the rest of his life, pocketed and attached to his belt by a two-pound silver 
chain. 

The watch and chain, along with a splendid example of the wagonmakcr's 
art — a W^ells, Fargo Concord stagecoach — are two examples of memorabilia 
displayed in abundance in the W ells Fargo Bank His- 
torv Room at the bank's head office, 420 Montgomerv 
St.' 

The History Room, directed and maintained by a 
charming and highly competent curator. Irene Simp- 
son, is open to the public on every banking day from 
10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and al.so by appointment during 
other business hours. 

Both the researching historian and the pleasure- 
seeking tourist find much of high-quality and interest 
in this high ceilinged room which displays documents, 
posters, firearms, buttons, badges, artifacts and other 
items of early San Francisco and the pioneer W est. 

The name, W ells, Fargo, of course, summons up 
manv. romantic, often violent, images for the "wild 
west*' afficionado." Xaines occur — such as Black Bart. 
During the 187()s and "80s. Bart terrorized the stage- 
coach trails throughout the Mother Lode country and 

all the wav to San Francisco. The W(dls Fargo museum displays many rewar<l 
posters, ''left handed" tributes to the highwaymen who haunted transport 
between the mines in the old days. 

Black Bart, committed at least 28 successful robberies. He .stands as a 
swashbuckling symbol for old western badmen. 

Prominent in the Wells Fargo History Room's permanent display are 
many samples of gold in all its raw forms, an array of ore, nuggets and gold 
diist that has its own special fascination. 

One measur<'s the glitter of gold with the eye (and is sometimes fooled), 
but its worth is weighed. In the \\ (dis Fargo display is a set of scales so 
accurate, it is claimed, "it can weigh a pencil mark on a piece of paper." 

A librarv of reference works is maintained for the scholar, who can really 
sleep bimsfdf in his subject here where many of his references are the actual 
documents or iconography of the times. 

The Wells Fargo History Room is a wonderful world of discovery for 
voung and old seeking rich and n<'w experiences in their lours of the city.

Chamber Will Renew 
Pleas for Continaing 
Freeivay Construction 

Freeway construction in San Francisco at a 
total estimated cost of $45,350,000 will be 
recommended by the Chamber when the Cali- 
fornia Highway Commission meets to con- 
sider the 1964-65 highway budget in August. 

"Although the board of supervisors' resolu- 
tion of January. 1959. which halted major 
freeway construction in the city, has not been 
changed, the San Francisco Chamber main- 
tains a continued interest in a freeway pro- 
gram for San Francisco." G. L. Fox. executive 
vice president of the Chamber, explained. 

The chamber's board of directors approved 
recommended items for presentatit)n to the 
state body which were prepared by the street, 
highway and bridge section of the chamber's 
civic development committee. 

Included in the proposals are: extension of 
the Southern Freeway from end of presently 
budgeted project at Army street 3.4 miles to 
Howard street; and completion of route 
studies for proposed Hunters Point Freeway 
(Bayshore Freeway near south county line to 
junction with Southern Freeway extension 
near Islais Creek channel I. 

The proposed Southern Freeway extension 
carries a price tag of $45 million. 

Other Chamber-supported items are land- 
•scaping of 1.1 miles of Southern Freeway 
(1100.000); revised signing on James I.ick 
Memorial Freeway ($2,50.000). and the com- 
pletion of negotiations respecting Richardson 
avenue approach to Golden Gate Bridge, as 
well as studies for widening. These and the 
preceding items are not in conflict with the 
supervisors' policy. 

The Chamber recommendations to the high- 
way commission will include this statement: 
"The chamber takes the position that it is 
necessary to have a well-integrated freeway 
system in the City and County of San Fran- 
cisco, and strongly urge that the state proceed 
with studies as soon as practical on routes 
connecting the Junipero Serra Freeway to the 
Central Freeway and the Golden Gate Bridge." 

Chairman of the Chamber's civic develop- 
ment committee is Edward C. Sequeira, assist- 
ant to the president. Western International

Fewer said. 

The new tree planting chairman of the 



Chamber stressed that "the ultimate goal of 
the program is 350.000 trees throughout the

Your Chiunher On The Air 

Are you keeping informed on civic affairs? One of the l)est wavs to do 
so is to listen to your Chaml)er-sponsored and (Chamber-conducted radio 
shows. Did you know the Cluunher stages three puldic service radio programs 
every week of the year? 

It's suggested you find the time to catch one of the following shows; all 
are provocative and each will help you gain a hetter balance to your perspec- 
tive of the local scene: 

At 8:05 p.m. every Saturday, San Francisco in the Sixties mav he heard 
on KNBR (680 on the AM radio dial). At 9 p.m. on Sundays,' the show. 
Conference Call, is heard on KFRC (610 on the dial), and the program San 
Francisco Report occurs on the same station 45 minutes later. 

All three shows are moderated by G. L. Fox, your Chamber's executive 
vice president, and all present issues of the day discussed by leaders of the 
community. 

Since the first of the year, San Francisco in the Sixties has delved into 
such sid)jects as population explosion, mimicipal railway fares, overcrowding 
at Juvenile Hall, the problem of school dropouts. Governor Brown's tax pro- 
gram, California's textbook program, the state's wilderness, the cost of admin- 
istering charities, community renewal, student employment and many other 
vital topics. 

Among community leaders who have appeared on this KNBR Saturday 
night sbow are Thomas F. Stiycula. chief probation officer in San Francisco: 
James R. McCarthy, San Francisco planning director; Lt. Dante Andreotti, 
of the San Francisco Polic** Department, and Robert Holt, manager of the 
California Tomato (Growers Association, to mention just a few. 

KFRC's 30-minule (lonference (Call lias in tbe period examined such vital 
questions as deliufpiency and tbe increasing defiance of police autboritv. 
private property assessment methods, the «lelta water i)rojects. automation 
and the labor force, charities, racial tensions. South of Market development, 
bay planning, the state apprenticeship program, and topics of similar w«Mght. 

Panelists have included Assessor Russell Wolden; Cyril Magnin. presi<leii! 
of tbe S. F. Port Authority; Examiner sportswriter Prescott Sullivan: Chief 
of i'olice Thomas (lahill: Charles Hanna. chief of tbe State Division of 
Apprenticeship Standards, and many other leaders.

looked at siieb pr(»grams as Big Brother Week, our fire department, the (iolden 
(gateway. Invest in America Week, litter control, the Stem Grove story, and 
many other topics.

Brian Fewer Is Xaiiiecl 
'hairman of Chamber 
Pree Planting^ Section 

(Contiiiuetl from [ttige one) 

eshening agency." 

Fewer noted that San Francisco experienccil 
s most successful "Plant-a-Tree Week" thi< 
;ar with more than 5,000 trees planted dur- 
g that time. ''The event was well-puhli("ized 
f the Chamber." he said, "and its effect has 
sted over the months. Our office is continu- 
iy receiving applications for plantintz and 

deluged with requests for tree information." 

The chairman's optimism was reflected 
iroughout the Chamber executive staff. It 
as recalled by G. L. Fox, executive vice 
resident, and by Sidney H. Keil, Chamber 
ineral manager, that the last big tree po- 
oti(m (.April) also resulted in the sale of 
000 flowering fruit trees in the matter of 
)urs, "reflecting the keen interest that lias 
i-veloped throughout the city in the Cham- 
iT campaign." 

Myron S. Tatarian. director of the city's 
epartment of Public Works, noted that "few 
rograms for community betterment have had 
ich a popular response" and that his office 
is received many inquiries from other cities 
iroughout the United .States about the pro- 
-am. 

"Individual home-owners in the city's out- 
ing areas and commercial and industrial 
iterests in the central district can reap many 
i;nefits by planting trees," he continued. 

"In addition to enhancing homes and busi- 
ssses, a carefully and fully |)lanned volim- 
iry tree |)lanting campaign is a sure-fire 
lethod to avoid the encroachment of the con- 
"ete jungle." 

A tree planting booklet, describing the trees 
lost suitable to .San Francisco's various dis- 
icts with their differing climates, is avail- 
ble free at the Chamlier, 333 Pine Street, 
r at the Department of Public Works, 2323 
rmy street, fewer noted. Basic considera- 
ons in the trees listed include suitability to 
limate, low maintenance cost, freedom from 
iscase or insect-attack, shallow root systems 
nd the least possible lifter problem.

]\etherlanc1s Look To 
California Marlceting 

"The food requircnu-nts of Tiie Netherlands 
will be increasingly in the realm of "sophisti- 
cated foods' and California should be in the 
front ranks of suppliers." 

That suggestion was made by Jack Gom- 
perts, president of Calagrex, Inc., of San Fran- 
cisco, at a recent luncheon of the San Francis- 
co Area World Trade Association in the Ferry 
Building's World Trade Club. Gomperts only 
recently had returned from a visit to Holland 
as a mend)er of a U. S. Dei)arlnu'nt of Com- 
merce trade mission. 

A Dutch-born naturalized American citi- 
zen, Gom|)erts, who is a major exporter of 
agricultural commodities, noted that ". . . 
canned fruit, fresh fruit and frozen foods have 
great possibilities. I would like to see a bit 
more salesmanshij) and imagination employed 
in the exi)loitation of Holland and other 
l'",uro|)ean countries as markets for fresh 
fruit . . .". 

lu iiiiiidiii^ thai the United .States exports 



to Holland much more than it imports from 
that nation, he continued, "The Dutch busi- 
nessman . . . understands full well that our 
export drive is by far the best of all alterna- 
tives to remedy our balance of payments prob- 
lem. It is. consequently, as imjjortant to 
them as it is to us."

"One more link in a long chain of acts of 
Nevada intere~t> to pilfer California industr>*" 
is what Charles C. Miller, manager of the 
Cliamhers transportation department, calls 
latt?t attempts to establish furniture storage- 
in-transit privileges in Reno for final distribu- 
tion in California. 

Miller reported this week that "the Califor- 
nia Ecfmomic Development Agency joins in 
the Chamber's concern over Nevada's en- 
croachment on California industry and com- 
merce through the medium of reduced freight 
rates and charges, and the establishment of 
transit privileges.

The agricultural committee of the Chamber

according to Carl L. Garrison, chairman of

For This H eckcnd 



California's annual $3.9 billion agricultural industry "is threatened by 
evidence that the price of water under the state water project will be 
prohibitive for most agricultural uses." according to the Chamber. 

The assertion was made as the Chamber agricultural committee, com- 
prising a formidable cross-section of the industry- throughout the state, 
announced its policies on developing the state water project. Recommenda- 
tions of the committee drew the unanimous approval of the Chamber 
board of directors. 

Under the policies proposed, costs of the project would be shared in 
proportion to the benefits derived. "Yardsticks for measuring the values 
of these benefits should be agreed on as a basis for cost allocation." 

It is also proposed that investigational costs accrued prior to the 
SI34 billion water bond proposal to the electorate in November. 1960. 
"should not be reflected in the price of project water." 

Project water which may be available in quantities beyond those under 
contract should be "offered to agricultural areas as long as possible on a 
priority basis and at approximately the cost of operation and mainte- 
nance." The same is proposed for water "available during interim periods 
as the project develops." 

The board approved the committee's recommendation that "full ad- 
vantage should be taken of federal funds that may be available . . . for 
flood control, navigation, recreation and conservation of fish and game. 

"Amounts that have been allocated to the State Water Project from 
the California \^ ater Fund should be interest free. . . ." 

The Chamber board also supports enabling 
legislation permitting loans to agricultural 
areas "in serious need of special assistance to 
finance local water distribution systems. . . ." 
Maximum repayment time for those who 
borrow tideland oil funds to develop local 
water projects is urged, as well as opposition 
"as a matter of principle " to efforts to divert 
tideland oil funds away from state water proj- 
ects. 

Amounts collected from large landowners 
by a contracting agency should be retained by 
the agency for future availability to reduce 
the cost of project water, it is recommended. 

"The private company inter-tie to bring 
cheap electric power into the state will be an 
aid to pumping project water and should be 
supported. " 

And finally, it is proposed that "ways to 
amend the contract (between the state and 
agencies) to give agriculture every equitable 
consideration should be defined and pur- 
sued. . . ." 



Nevada State Free Port Law." Miller remind- 
ed, "are luring established California business 
to Nevada." 

The Chamber has traditionally opposed 
(since 1959) this "free port'" practice which 
brings about rates from Reno into California's 
major distributing areas which are lower than 
those for service between San Francisco and 
the same pr)ints.

In 15 years, the nunilier of electronics firms in the 11 western states 
increased from 85 employiiif: 11.000 and <reneratinfr sales of .S159 million i in

Veterans of the 101st Airhorne Division — one of the great-

ton-Palace Hotel August 1.5-18 for their 18tii annual reunion 
(first to be held in San Francisco), according to Jack Podes- 
ta. general chairman. 

More than 500 soldiers from all over the 
nation are expected to attend, Podesta, a 
Chamber ex-officio director and president of 
the San Francisco Retail Merchants, said. 

The division is the only one in U. S. Army 
history to have been awarded two Presidential 
Citation Units. It was the first full division 
ever to be cited in the name of the President 
of the United States. The division led the 
Normandy invasion, fought in Belgium, Hol- 
land, the Rhincland and Central Europe. Its 
defense of Bastogne has become a classic in 
American combat history. 

A special contingent of 50 troopers from 
the present active 101st Airborne Division at

combat-ready striking unit, also will attend, as

Zellerbach Lauded 
By Chamber Official 

"W ith the passing this week of James David 
Zellerbach. chairman of the board of Crown 
Zellerbach Corporation, San Francisco lost not 
only a dynamic industrialist but a great heart- 
ed gentleman and a true citizen of the world 
as well. 

"Mr. Zellerbach was a positive force in San 
Francisco for the development and mainte- 
nance of the arts. 

''He had been president of the San Fran- 
cisco Symphony Association, a director of the 
San Francisco Opera Association and of the 
San Francisco Planning and Urban Renewal 
.Association — to mention just a few of his 
activities. 

"On the international level. Mr. Zellerbach 
was esteemed as a gentleman and a diplomat 
who exemplified San Francisco's finest tradi- 
tions. His services as United States ambassa- 
dor to Italy from 1956 to 1960 earned him the 
gratitude of both nations. 

"He was noted for his many charitable 
works and was prominent in many civic organ- 
izations dedicated to the betterment of man. 
lie served as a director of the Chamber in 
1951, 1952 and 1953. 

■'San Francisco and the world have lost a 

highly talented and deeply humane champion 

for all that's progressive and meaningful in 

life." ■

Yes, it is Petrarch Place, that alley near the Chamber building. Just 
one edition ago, it was a typically bleak, if useful, San Francisco alley. 
Today, attractive trees in handsome planter boxes invite passers-by to 
tarry a moment and they do. It is all jmrt of the Chamber's landscap-

'Good Politics^ Good Government Go Hand-in-Hand^ 



Edtcin P. Meilan. president of the 
Chamber of Commerce of the Vnited 
States, discussed the federal government 
and ^^pork-harrel spending^^ at a lunch- 
eon in the Commercial Club last tceek 
under the sponsorship of the club and 
the San Francisco Chamber of Com- 
merce. Excerpts from his fiery speech, 
entitled ^''They''re Throwing It Atcay Just 
To Be Big Spenders."'' follotv. Impact of 
the speech can be measured by the in- 
numerable calls requesting copies of it 
handled all this week by the Chamber. 
— The Editor 

"Good political morals and good gov- 
ernment go hand-in-hand. . . . We have a 
right to insist on the highest standards of 
public morality from the men we elect 

to office. . . . 

* * * 

"^ number of our national officehold- 
ers suport a double standard of morality 
— one for themselves and another for the 
taxpayers who foot the bill. . . . 

* * * 

"Too many of our Senators and Con- 
gressmen have become 'bagmen' for their 
constituents. . . . The voters either toler- 
ate or insist upon the reckless spending of 
public money for self-serving local proj- 
ects that do not meet the test of national 

interest. . . . 

* * * 

"The party in power has more tax 
money to spend than at any previous 
time in history and more ways to spend 
it. . . . Unless there is a great awaken- 
ing of public conscience, the 1964 elec- 
tion could well turn into the greatest 
auction sale of all time. . . . 

* * * 

"Money the federal spenders have in 
their give-away bag . . . doesn't fall from 
Heaven in a once-a-year shower. It rep- 
resents the hard work and sacrifice of 
180 million Americans. . . . Yet the spend-

on a spree, confident that the supply is 
inexhaustible. . . .

"A federal agency that finds itself tvith 
unspent funds in the final month of the 
fiscal year rushes out to find a project 
that will empty the till by June 30 so 
that the next year's budget can be in- 
creased rather than cut back. And what 
does this waste cost the taxpayers? I'd 
be afraid to guess."

"Of all the federal agencies that spend 
without justification, the .\rea Redevelop-

out to get another $455 million from Con-

San Francisco ranked first in the state during; th«' 1961 income year in the filing 
of taxable returns, according to the 1962 annual report to the Governor by the Cali- 
fornia Franchise Tax Board. In San Francisco, 291 taxable returns per 1, ()()() resi-

return. Santa Barbara County's second place 
— $116.90 — was a nose ahead of Marin Coun- 
ty's third, $116.49. The average for the state

1961-62." 

And the board pointed out, "Calendar year 
collections scored an even more impressive 
gain than fiscal year collections. For liie 1962 
calendar year they totaled $305,936,391, com- 
pared with collections of $270,024,786 in the

United We Stand — Divided We 
Surely Would Have Fallen Low 

Efforts to sever the San Francisco-Oakland Standard Metropolitan Statistical 
Area have been st\Tnied, for the time being, according to reports from Washington. 

Chaml)er Executive Vice President G. L. Fox assembled data and documents 
necessarv to head off the proposal — which would affect statistics from vital sources 
on population and its trends, emplo\Tnent volume and structure, traffic, newspaper 
circulation, telephone usage, charge accounts, 



banks, corporations and other key indices of 
the general Bay Area economy. 

The theme, in essence, is: "united we stand, 
divided we fall." 

In reviewing the histon,- of efforts during the 
last 15 years to define both standard metropol- 
itan areas and a consolidated area. Fox noted 
that, concurrent with the move to split off the 
East Bay from San Francisco, "representatives 
of Sacramento. San Joaquin. Santa Cruz and 
Y'olo Counties requested the San Francisco 
Chamber of Commerce to recognize them as 
parts of the Bay Region in its publications 
and otherwise. 

"Consequently," he reminded, "the 
Chamber published five-county, six- 
county (S.M.S.A.), nine-county and 
twelve-and then 13-county (when Santa 
Cruz w as added ) sub-totals in statistical 
tables. 

"While data for the six-county Metropolitan 
Area are of dominating importance." he con- 
tinusd, "the term 'Bay Area' generally refers 
to nine counties and the term 'Bay Region' to 
13 counties." 

LOSS IN RANK 
Fox stressed that the San Francisco-Oak- 
land Metropolitan Area (comprised of the six 
counties of Alameda. Conta Costa. San Fran- 
cisco, San Mateo. Marin and Solano) ranks 
sixth nationally in economic wealth. Opposed 
is a proposal to create a new San Francisco 
Area which would rank 14th in the nation and 
a new East Bay alignment of counties ranking 
16th. 

The proposal was predicated also on a par- 
allel plan combining Solano and Napa coun- 
ties as a new economic entity. 

"In all reality and logic, San Fran- 
cisco and Oakland are e<-ononiically in- 
terdependent," Fox stated, "and any

I'niverslty of San Francisco (1944*, succeeds the 
late Harold Berliner as president of the 63-year- 
old San Francisco manufac luring firm. The 
Hockwald Company. Hockwald makes and dis- 
tributes maintenance supplies. . . . 



hierachical ambitions on the part of 
either would eventually destroy the eco- 
nomic health of both." 

The office of statistical standards of the 
Bureau of the Budget recognizes this fact, Fox 
added, in its definition: 

"The general concept of a standard metro- 
politan statistical area is that of an integrated 
economic unit having as its nucleus a city (or 
two contiguous cities) above 50.000 in popida- 
tion with a large volume of daily travel and 
communication between the central city and 
other parts of the area. . . ." 

DEFINITION FITS 

The existing metropolitan area fits the Bu- 
reau definition exactly — with San Francisco 
(the central city in this instance) providing 
tlie preponderance of employment for the area 
and the impetus for a heavy flow of traffic both 
ways. 

The circulations of three San Francisco 
metropolitan newspapers throughout the pro- 
posed 13-county San Francisco Consolidated 
Area are part of the Chamber concept of the 
realistic range of the actual economic inter- 
dependence of a natural geographic unity. 

Telephone calls between San Francisco and 
downtown Oakland and Piedmont average 
about 1.5 million a month in each direction, 
aceording to the Pacific Telephone and Tele- 
graph Company. 

The economic unity and homogeneity of the 
Bay Region is attested also by credit account 
information. 

PROOF UNNECESSARY 

Commented the San Francisco Examiner in 
a recent editorial: "The economic oneness of 
the Bay Area is so evident that we would never 
had thought proof necessary." Arthur Caylor, 
News Call Bulletin columnist, asserted, "the 
move to spilt the area would merely damage 
everybody concerned." 

Philip G. Lasky, vice president. Westing- 
house Broadcasting Company, added: 

'■Disnu-mberment of the unified economic 
force of the San Francisco-Oakland Standard 
Metropolitan Area would reduce the impact of 
this area upon the business world."

Franco !$till Leading 
Market for the U. 8. 

France continues to be a leading market 
for American products despite tariff difficul- 
ties foreseeable within the European Common 
Market. 

That's the opinion of F. Paul Farish, recent- 
ly retired general manager of the American 
Chamber of Commerce in France who ad- 
dressed the San Francisco Area W Orld Trade 
Association last week at the WOrld Trade 
Club. 

Farish pointed out that more than 2.000 
American firms still are selling their products 
to France — a business volume running at the 
rate of almost $1 billion annually. 

"American traders and businessmen, con- 
cerned over the rising tariff on some agricul- 
tural i)roducts are perhaps overlooking a 
parallel trend to lower tariffs in other mar- 
keting areas," he said. 



Efforts to limit lieijihts of coniuierc 
Imsiness district have been decried bv G. 
Cbainber. 

FoIIowinu; a reafTirination of a lonp-sti 
by tbe l>oard of directors, Fox stated that 
the economics of tiie situation and also the 
reputation of the community and its attractive- 
ness to major builders and investors. 

"Tinkering with the floor area ratio 
in the i'.-H district is hazarding the wel- 
fare of the city an«l adversely affecting 
the business climate," he warned. 

Chamber action was in challenge of efforts 
to reduce the present ratio of 20 feet of floor 
space to one square foot of site which present- 
ly applies to inside lots. (A 25:1 ratio is 
allowed for corner lots.) 

"The (Jiainher," Fox continued, "is 
seeking to enhance San Francisco as a 
niujor management and executive head- 
quarters center for the western United 
States and is continuing its policy to 
make our community as attractive as 
possible t<) accomplish this goal. 

"San Francisco has geographical character- 
istics which are more limiting than those 
which prevail in most other communities. It 
is a city which cannot spread and. to fulfill 
its destiny, must grow upward." 

A currently proposed amendment to reduce 
the limit in the planning code would. Fox 
pointed out, make a building now under con- 
struction — and deemed highly desirable by the 
business community — not permissible to build. 

"Likewise, construction of an an- 
nounced structure would not he permis- 
sible under the proposed amendment 
inasmuch as it would have a floor area 
ratio of 23.8 to 1. 

"Certainly, such magnificent improvements 
are desirable for San Francisco and every 
effort to attract them, rather than reject them, 
should be made." 

Fox warned, "... If the city invokes 
a law which would prohibit such inves- 
tors as are engaged ( in major construc- 
tion projects currently under way or 
planned) from d<>termining what is eco- 
nomically feasible in the improvement 
of .San Francisco property, such a law 
would adv«'rs«'ly affect other property 
values. . . ."

Amended Maritime 
Mediation Bill is 
Backed hy Directors 

Directors of the Chamber have voted sup- 
port of the Bonner Bill (HR 1897), as amend- 
ed, providing for extended mediation in mari- 
time disputes, according to G. L. Fox, execu- 
tive vice president of the Chamber. 

Action of the board followed the recom- 
mendation of the Chamber transportation 
committee of which Russell A. Morin, director 
of traffic, Fibreboard Paper Products Cor- 
poration, is acting chairman. 

"This bill is intended to provide better ma- 
chinery than now exists for the prevention of 
work stoppage in major maritime disputes af- 
fecting public interest." Morin said. "It is 
designed to protect the legitimate interests of 
both management and labor. 

"The bill would provide a logical step-by- 
step procedure of bargaining mediation with 
work continuing throughout procedures. 

"Specifically, it would authorize the Presi- 
dent to appoint a national emergency board 
to seek settlement by mediation within 60 days 
in any major dispute involving the American 
merchant marine. Parties involved would be 
required to continue work for another 90 
days should a solution not be found within the 
original mediation period."

THE .SIERRA, by W. Storrs Lee, G. P. 
Putnam's .Sons, New York — price $5.95. 

"This is tbe morning of creation, the whole 
thing is beginning now. The mountains are 
singing together." 

Thus rhapsodized the great poet-naturalist 
John Muir on first viewing Vernal and Nevada 
Falls in Yosemite. Multitudes have had similar 
feelings, more or less articulated, since. And 
they may be experienced any day, anywhere 
throughout the whole range of the mighty 
California mountain barrier known as the 
Sierra. 

\V. Storrs l.fc, educator and a man wlio 
knows his mountains (The Green Mountains 
of Vermont) intimately as Muir learned to 
know them, has written a colorful historical 
account which will do much to enrich today's 
.seeker of the wonders of the out-of-doors. This 
is both a history of great events and of human 
frailties and strengths, written for popular 
appeal but based on solid scholarship.

The San Francisco Historical Monument, a

The monument consists of a block square 
l)ark. the restored Hyde street pier and four 
historic California vessels, and tlie Haslett 
\^ arehouse. soon to be filled with a display of 
early Western rolling stock. 

The monument was built with $2 million of 
tidelands oil royalty money, conceived by the 
San Francisco Maritime Museum in 1948 and 
engineered by the State Division of Beaches 
and Parks. The square was designed by inter- 
nationally known landscape architect Thomas 
Church. 

The vessels on display include the last of 
the San Francisco Bay ferries, the Eureka 
(the only extant "walking beam" ferryboat on 
the North American continent) ; the three- 
masted lumber schooner. C. A. Thayer; a dou- 
ble-ended steam schooner. Wapama; and a 
hay scow built in 1891 at Hunters Point, the 
Alma. 

The vessels are open to the i)ublic daily

Truck Accident Rate Cut Drastically 

Accidents involving tht» Scavengers Protective Association have l)een cut 
83.8 per cent in five years, according to John P. Moseone, president of th<> 
Association. 

I nder a program — originally inspired by the ainiiial Chamber vehicular 
safety cheek and headed bv (^eorge KasiiofT. safetv consultant for the organiza- 
tion — the Association has found that time tak<>n for <*ducational discipline 
within the organization has paid oO in thousands of dollars. 
"Truek accident frecjueney numbered 
about one a day five years ago," Moseone 
said. 

Under the present effort to curb acci- 
dents, a safety eomniittee has been set up 
by KasiU)fT. Hearings are held and llu' dri\- 
ers. who share positions on the committee 
along with directors, judge their fellow 
men. If the driv<M' is found to be in the 

wrong, his penallv involves work dav losses ,. ,. „

- and that means a slash in income. 

Firm personnel also is involved in checking vehicles, blocks under wheels, 
ami numerous mechanical safetv factors. 

(Cooperating with the safety program is F. Bussi, Local 315, SanitaiN 
Truck Drivers, and Manuel C. Conti, executive secretary of the Scavengers 
Protective Association. 

'"This is the closest thing to a self-insure*! program we can conceive of,*' 
Moseone said. "\\ ith more than 108 trucks traveling at all hours, we felt such 
a prf)gram was imperative. It's not onlv imperativ*'. it is also invaluable.''

I Folloiiing arc excerpts of a speech made 
by .M. Justin Herman, executive director, San 
Francisco Redevelopment .Agency, at the re- 
cent dedication luncheon of the San Francisco 
Produce Terminal. — The Editor.) 

"Today we celebrate more than the re-estal)- 
lishment of San Francisco's i)roduce industry 
within the gates of our city. We honor more 
than the produce men of courage and faith, 
the businessmen who were not afraid to take 
risks. Congressmen, federal officials, civic 
leaders, the mayor, supervisors, the Dworman 
organization, architect and contractor, attor- 
neys, city officials. Redevelopment Agency 

members. . . . 

* * * 

"Great accomplishments in a city 
come to those who insist that the future 
shall be not a little belter, but far better 
than the present. 

•X- * * 

"There are far more failures which are the 
lot of those who advocated nothing, who were 
simi)ly oppo.sed, or who risked too little too 
latt than those who want so much so soon for 
their beloved San Francisco. 

* * * 

"Through population growth and radical 
shift of functions, the most changing urban 
region in the United States will probably be 
the Bay .Area with the possibility, but not the 
assurance, of San Francisco as its hub. 

* * * 

"San Franci.>*co can become a shoddy, 
faceless city or a great headquarters 
center. Courageous planning coupled 
with equally courageous action increases 
our chances for the greater San Fran- 
cisco. 

* * * 

"The next great step for the City of San 
Francisco is to prepare to accommodate and 
complement its new (produce) facility with 
the rapid transit corridor study. . . . This study 
will look ahead at least a decade to putting the 
city in a position where it can set the stage for 
business development, for the expansion of 
the tourism industry, for cultural and recrea- 
tional facilities, and for housing for all citizens 
to match the transit system. 

* * * 

"Daniel Burnham may be 'old hat' to San 
Franciscans, but his advice to 'make no small 
|)lans' never had more valid application than 
trxiay when you have proof in the .San Fran- 
cisco Produce Terminal of what great plans 
can linally mean to you and to your city."

Sutro Forest — that [jart of it vvliicli hasn't 
fallen l)efore hulklozers — is a silent and con- 
tinuing trihiitc to Adolph Sutro who himself 
had had the trees planted — and who also 
made the University of California Hospital at 
the base of the mountain possible l)y his gen- 
erosity. 

\V itli litth- formal education, a brilliantly 
practical mind and a stubborn will. .Sutro ar- 
rived in .San Francisco in 1850. After having 
constructed the world-famed four-mile .Sutro 
Tunnel in Conistock country which involved 
a long l)Ut victorious battle with the Virginia 
City mine owners and the .San Francisco 
"FJank Ring" — he invested heavily in .San 
Francisco sandlots. built .Sutro Baths, provid- 
ed the city with many parks, railways and 
roadways. His greatest idea was to establish 
a library for scholars from all over the world 
<m the heights overlooking the present Clifl 
lioii^e and .Seals Kocks. (His enormous col- 
lection of books only recently has found a 
home on the campus of the University r)f San 
Francisco. I 

A practical engineer, he alsd appreciated 
the aesthetic, even if at times it took the form 
of a craze for outlandish 19th century bric-a- 
brac. 



Among the saddest days in the life of this 
doggedly honest Prussian-born engineer were 
during his term as mayor of the city he so 
loved: wily politicians broke his spirit. But he 
spent his last days on his beloved .Sutro 
Heights "'with the plaintive barkinji of the 
seals his funeral dirge."

I'riee «6.95. 

This is a series of rare and s|)ecially .San 
Franciscan j»ieces written by Mark Twain dur- 
ing his stay here in the saucy sixties of the last 
century — written before he attained fame as 
one of world literature's greatest humorists. 
Although Twain keeps company with such 
satanic scofTers as Voltaire. Dean .Swift and 
Juvenal, much of the material here is on a 
lesser level. He excoriates children in the man- 
ner of a W. C. fields and he often writes in 
the hoopskirl and high-button shoe style of 
his times. A "must." however, for collectors of 
San Franciscana. Pump's caricatures of the

Propositions G, J 
Voted Approval by 
Chamber Directors 

(Continued from page one) 

pension allowances from the city in addition 
to social security benefits. As it now stands, 
social security and the city pension plan are 
integrated, a formula which was approved by 
the voters in 1958. 

Estimated increased annual cost to 
the city, should Proposition C be ap- 
proved, has been set at $.^,372,814. 

Proposition D would extend city-suppt)rted 
health benefits to teachers who resign from the 
.San Francisco District to retire under the 
State Teachers' Retirement Plan. 

The city health service currently is costing 
the public almost $2 million a year in subsi- 
dized benefits, it was reminded. Proposition 
D. it was claimed, would add an estimated 
$54,376 to the annual cost of the health bene- 
fits. 

It means, it was further noted, that 

taxpayers would "have to pick up $18 a 

month in excess rosts for each teacher 

involved in this proposal.'' 

Proposition E would provide $25 a month 
increase in the retirement allowance for a 
group of employees retired before July. 1947. 
at an annual cost of $86,240. 

It was pointed out that "this group has had 
three grants of this kind in the past 15 years" 
and that "these pensiojiers have already re- 
ceived a greater pension increase than the 
increase in cost of living since 1947." 

Proposition F would provide pay parity for 
police and firemen. It would also place the 
Fire Prevention and Investigation Bureau, now 
under jurisdiction of the Fire Commission, 
under the fire chief, and would integrate the 
salvage corps personnel into the fire depart- 
ment. 

Policemen currently receive maxinnim |)ay 
$16 above that of firemen (.$69.3 as compared 
with $677). It was noted that "[jolicemen are 
difficult to recruit while the supply of firemen 
is ample." In recent times there have oc- 
curred numerous incidents in which policemen 
have taken the examination to switch to the 
fire department. 

It was reminded that San Francisco 

firemen "now receive a salary as hiph 

as any in the state." 

The other items in the proi)osition are. in 
the Chandler's view, "riders" which should not 
appear on the same projxtsal with parity pay. 
They are not of the same nature. The (chamber 
at this time reserves opinion on their merit. 

The annual public cost of carrying out the 
terms of Pro|)osition F (pay parity) has been 
estimated at $392,000. 

Pro|)()sition I would li\ the [)ay level of 
police sergeants nndway between that of 
patrolman and lieutenant, a 2'/^ per cent 
increase at an annual cost of $59,947. 

.Sergeants' salaries are jiresently closer to 
the lower grade. It was noted, however, "this 
is the third police increase presented in the 
|)ast two years and rej)resents piecemeal tink- 
ering with j)ay schedules." 

In addition, it was reminded, "this 

inerj'aMC makes the sergeant's salary 

identical to that of inspector (.f806 a 

month) and may lead to fulur<- requests 

for pay adjustments."

Record For Construction Permits 

Total value of construction permits issued in San Francisco during the first 
10 months of 1963 reached $169,072,964, a figure already surpassing last year's 
record total for 12 months, according to Thomas W. Borek, manager of the re- 
search department of the Chamher. 

The 1962 12-month total value for construction permits was $156-, 

184,401. The 196.^ 10-month figure exceeds it by S12,888,563. 

\X hen compared with the 1962 10-moiith figure. Borek noted, the upsurge in 
building permit valuation is dramatically emphasized — an increase of $41,363,407, 
or 32.4 per cent. 

The bulk of the 8169,072,964 thus far this year is accounted for 

mainlv bv office buihlings, Borek said. The valuation in that category 

is §44,945,786, while multi-unit dwellings accounted for $40,287,161.

buildings had been destroyed. The homeless 
were legion — hundreds of thousands left the

in interminable bread lines, worked (some- 
times under the duress of bayonet) to clean up 
the ruins. The loss was estimated at $500 mil-

For a period of 34 years, ending in early 
July, 1930, Mt. Tamalpais and the Muir 



Woods area were served by a little railway 
tliat twisted over 8V^ miles of trackage to the 
mountain's summit. 

With fine inns in the woods and at the sum- 
mit, and gravity cars in which visitors could 
coast serenely from the top into Mill Valley 
through the splendor of redwood forest by day 
or on a magically moonlit night, the Mt. 
Tamalpais and Muir Woods Railway must 
have been one of the sheer delights of the 
world.

100 Aiiieiidineiits to Building Code 
Recoiiiineiided bv Cliaiid)er Board 



Chamber directors have approved 100 pro- 
[ii>~ed amendments to the San Francisco build- 
ing code, according to G. L. Fox. executive 
vice president. 

The board acted on recommendation of the 
Chambers building code section, of which 
Wesley T. Hayes, of Graham & Hayes, struc- 
tural engineers, is chairman. 

-Many of the changes have become neces- 

- -v. Fox noted, because of the development 

new structural materials in recent years. 

^ .. h changes, in general, would be an up- 

^ling of the code to bring it into closer agree- 

nic-nt with national codes. 

Sections dealing with structural timber, 
structural steel and reinforced concrete would 



be modified to coincide with latest specifica- 
tions of the American Institute of Steel Con- 
struction, provisions of the American Concrete 
Institute's building code, the Steel Joist Insti- 
tutes specifications, and the light gage steel 
specifications of the American Iron and Steel 
Institute. 

The board also took cognizance of the rise 
of new materials in studying sections relating 
to fire resistive standards of finishes and the 
increasing use of plastics in construction. 

Code changes would be revised "to regulate 
the life hazard from smoke emission as well 
as that of flame spread and to regulate the 
use of plastics as building material."

One of the most remarkable trials ever held 
in San Francisco unfolds in this book — the 
first time the trial of Laura D. Fair has ever 
been fully reported. The scandalous carryings- 
on between Laura Fair and the respectable 
la^vyer-politician. A. P. Crittenden, provided 
gossip for years to come in and around San 
Francisco, because the affair involved many of 
the most prominent personages of the period. 
Although dealing essentially with a crime of 
passion, the book contains many interesting 
historical facts about the days of the Conistock 
Lode and the roaring West of the 1860s and 
'70s.

The San Francisco Symphony 




f f ff(>M ,., .ji 



FRENCH BAROQUE . . . S.F.'s homo oj opera and symphony . . . 

The San Francisco Symphony Orchestra has a tradition which closely 
parallels the colorful history of the city. 

And with the advent of Josef Krips, great Viennese interpreter of Mo/art 
and Beethoven, in the Symphony's 52nd season (1963-64), the orchestra enters 
upon a new era of growth and musical maturity. The excitement of a new 
concert season has always been a part of San Francisco's dynamic uniqueness. 

Indeed, music in San Francisco has come a long way since a woman violin- 
ist in the Gold Rush days "taxed strength and muscle by alternating musical 
offerings with gymnastic skills" in the city's El Dorado gambling saloon on 
the Barbary Coast. 

The first concert performed in San Francisco, in 1850. was described as 
"an exquisite execution of the classics on a tromlione by Signor Lobero." A 
Hungarian violinist, Miska Hauscr, led the city's first chamber music group, 
described by him as "a mental quadroloque of equally attuned soids." (The 
viola player later succumbed to an attack of indigestion. ) 

The orchestra today comprises more than 100 musicians. Its m<Mnl)ers 
form the core of musicians for the ballet, the opera, and various other orches- 
tral groups — cultural legatees of a musical tradition as proud as the city itself. 

Although the present musical organization was founded in 1911, the 
orchestra's roots antedate this l)y more than half a century. San Francisco's 
world of symphonic music was spawned in the opulent, turl)ulent period of 
the Gold Rush. 

After gold was discovered at Coloma, Rudolph Herold organized the city's 
first known "symphonic group' in 1854, which continued to give concerts for 
more than 25 years. Herold, a pianist and conductor, led an orchestra of 60 
pieces in the first of his concerts in 1865. He was followed by such distin- 
guished conductors as Louis Homeier, Gustav Hinrichs and Fritz Scbcel. (The 
latter, highly esteemed by Brahms, Tschaikovsky, and Von Bulow, founded 
the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra.) 

The first major orchestra to allow womett to perform, the San Francisco 
Symphony Orchestra also has fostered such prodigies as Yehudi Meiuihin, 
Rutii Slenzynska, Ruggiero Ricci, Patricia Benkman and Grisha (Joluboff. 

In tbe '50*s and '60"s singers Eliza Bisccianti, (^alln'rinc Hayes an<I Madam 
\tina Bisbop gave San Francisco its first reputation as an (q»era-loviiig com- 
munity. The famed Tivoli ()[>era House, begiiniing in 1879. bad operatic per- 
formances everv dav in ibe year witbout a break for 26 straigbl years (a

Foley Report: Growth 
Of Small Businesses 
Healthy, Promising 

The growth of small business investment 
corporations jjroviding venture capital for 
burgeoning industry — and. often, the man- 
agement know-how — has been continuously 
encouraging, according to Eugene P. Foley, 
federal administrator of the Small Business 
Administration. 

And California, with its development of 
many new enterprises involving new mate- 
rials, techniques and products, has seen the 
licensing of more SBlCs than any other state 
in the Union. Foley noted. 

Foley addressed a meeting co-spon.sored by 
the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, the 
National Federation of In(le[)endent Business, 
the SBA San Francisco Regional Office, the 
Western Association of Small Business Com- 
l)anies. the San Mateo Development Associa- 
tion and the President's Executive Advisory 
Board. 

Since passage of the SB.-\ bill in 1958 and 
licensing of the first .SBIC in 19.59. the pro- 
gram has seen the growth of 678 SBICs pro- 
viding $475 million in venture capital for 
8.500 small business enterprises, Foley re- 
ported. 

And even during the "past 18 months — a 
period of market depression, economic uncer- 
tainties and abundant adver.se criticism of 
(the |)rogram), 122 new licensees came into 
the program, bringing more than $43 million 
in private capital with them." Foley said. 

Foley was introduced by Emmett G. Solo- 
mon, president and chief executive officer of 
(!rocker-Citizens National Bank, who served 
as chairman of the day.

Ne\er beiore have a few problems so shaj)ed a city's destiny as those now 
lacing the growth of San Francisco. Nor have such problems presented a 
citizenry more challenging opj^ortiniities. 

The tangled freeways of the liay Area and snarled iiallu (onditions 
in dfjwntown San Francisco are challenges that must bring about a network 
of freeways and public iranspf)riation wliich shoidd become the envy of cities 
throughout the nation. 

The exchange ol blighted areas tor new residential and business 

construction would not only increase tax revenues but woidd create better 

housing and working (ondiiions for our citizens. Leadership in this effort to 

imjjrove our standard of living would stand as a goal for civic leaders 

everywhere. 

The rights of humans as expressed in Ijetter working relationships 
between the many races that make up the citizenry of San Francisco and more 
leadership on the part of business in creating equal rights between these races 
is a challenge for justice and ecjuality. 

linning these impossible tasks into genuine accomplishments will be the 
aim of the San Francisco Chamber in 1901. It will call upon the cooperation 
of public officials— whose interests are the same; upon businessmen large and 
small— whose future hinges ujion the results; and upon the greater niniibers 
of employed citizens— whose very existence depends upon our success. 

To accelerate our efforts, the Cliamber must look within and be sure 
that it is up to date in its financial support, its program; and its manpower 
organization. 

Our ability to achieve resulis will be determined by the degree of 
cooperation and support gi\en by the entire business comnumity, the 
political leaders of ilie city, and labor interests.

Freeway Safety Record 
Lends Strong Support 
To New Construction 

A strong point supporting the constriulion of 
more frccwavs is their safety record, according 
to |. ]', Sinclair, assistant state highway 
engineer. 

Sinclair provided an e\am|)le in San Francisco 
to bear out his statement— a comparison i)etween 
the 1962 traffic experience on the Enibarcadero 
rree\\a\ and on I'ark-Presidio Roule\ard. 

During that >ear, the freeway carried ;U,5()0 
vciiicles per day on the average, Sinclair said, 
vet its accident total for the year was oidy 11 — 
nine property damage and two injnrv— and 
there were no fatalities. 

In contrast, Park-Presidio carried ;il,00() 
vehicles per day on the average and there were 
1 10 accidents (10 times those of the freeway), 
02 proj^erty damage mishaps (seven limes those 
of the freeway) and 48 injury accidents (24 
limes the freeway) accounting for 74 persons 
injured (37 times). There were no fatalilies.

PICTORIAL HISTORY OF THE 
WILD WEST by James D. Horan and 
Paul Sann. Crown Publishers, Inc., 419 
Park Avenue South, New York City. 

Billed as "the whole story truly told 
with pictures of the West from lawless- 
ness to order," this is a must for collectors 
of Western lore. It does belittle the 
legend of Joacpiin Murieta, the "Robin 
Hood of the Ciolden \\'est ' and ignores 
the last and greatest of the train robbers, 
Roy Gardner, who made Southern 
Pacific as miserable in the late twenties 
as Black fiart did Wells Fargo in earlier 
days.

Francisco's Ciaslight Era, Bierce vanished 
iiivsteriously one clay in Mexico in 1913 
;ilter a long career in journalism here— 
iiuluding tlie writing of a column for 
the Hearst Sutiday Examiner. Bierce, 
like Dean Swift, attacked corrupt and

plicahle alonji the northern waterfront

SALUTE TO SF INDUSTRY 




Ciij^m Largest Industrial Employer 

The San Francisco >iaval Shipyard at Hunters Point is hoth the city's 
largest industrial emplover — 7.000 civilian workers and one of th«' nation's 
top-rated yards for efficiency of operation. 

The animal civilian payroll at the yard runs at S59 million. $66 million 
is spent locallv on materials and supplies. Last year S27 million in military 
])av went to SOO officers and men hased at the yard. 1042 ahoard fleet ships 
home ported here, and ahout 4.400 attached to ships assigned here for repair. 

During the 22 years since the Navy Department look over Bethlehem's 
Hunters Point Dry<lock 11 days after Pearl Haritor and huilt it into the San 
Francisco Naval Shipyard, the site has grown, through tideland reclamation, 
from a half-harren 48 acres to 979, six drydocks, four miles of deep water 
herthing space and 490 huildings. Hunters Point itself is a peninsula with a 
hard rock hase, w hich gives the yard a natural advantage aiul a logi<al position. 

Navv Boards and Congressional committees since 1910 have consistently 
and repeatedly stated the need for a Navy repair hase at Hunters Point. A 
Navv harhor studv in 1962 called the shipyard site "one of the finest in the 
world." 

Growth has come ahout through necessity. Fully aware of th<> growing 
crisis in the Pacific, the Navy made the initial purchase in 1940 (for 
$3,900,000). Development funds, however, were not granted hy Congress until 
war caiiu". Soon thereafter a nucleus of Vlar<» Island men hegan a frantic 
|)reparalion for the expansion to come at San Francisco. Fortuiuttely, there 
were two good drydocks. one of which could handle the largest hattleships 
damaged at Oahu. It had heen huilt in 1916 t)n the sit<' of the monster 46.^- 
foot dock constructed 47 years previously hy the city's fahuloiis promoter. 
\V . C. Ralston, huilder of the Palace Hotel, for commercial use. 

Before long a hill containing fiv<^ million cuhic yards of earth and rock 
was dmuped into the hay to form more land. Piers, huildings and shops were 
(piickly put up. Eventually, an 1,100-foot drydock was constructed. 

Todav, the yard is onc^ of the two low-cost Naval yards in the country. It 
just set a new record of 69,000 man-days for a destroyer major rehahilitation 
project. The previous record was 72.000 man-days. Some shipyards take u|» to 
100!000 for identical johs. 

The superior natural advantages of th<> yard inchnlc navigahle waters on 
ihrcc sides, an unrestricted approach channel with minimum water of 60 feet 
leading up to pi«'rs and drydocks. lUc large deep-water aiuhorage of protected 
San Francisco harhor, its strategic location in the Pacific Basin and cpiick 
access to the open sea through the Golden Gate.

port of San Francisco-Oakland Heli- 
copter Airlines atop the trans-hay term- 
inal at First and Mission streets has heen 
\oted hv the aviation section of the

The action, in the form of a recom- 
memlalion to the hoard of directors of

I riite<l Airlines, chairman of the So<iel\ 
for- the Preservation of Commercial Air- 
craft. 

The section's vote on the heliport mat- 
ter was taken monients after Bagan com- 
pleted his presentation in which he re-

>an Francisco Rediscovered in Events Calendar 



It takes newcomers, sometimes, really to 
■•cover San Francisco. Two housewives, re- 
ntly arrived from the East, met here, made 
me mutual discoveries, put their heads to- 
ther and, presto! — something truly heautiful 
-ulted. 

The source of inspiration: Mrs. INorman 
Iber and Mrs. Richard De Filippi. now dba 
; Filippi and Binni. Their work: A San 
ancisco Calendar of Events for 1964, illus- 
ited with magnificent photographs of the 
y's persent and i)ast. 11x14 inches between 
ong pasteboard covers, a splendid example 
thf litliographer's art. 

A calendar to keep when the year is done, it 
the forerunner of new issues to come each 
ar and functions as a normal, day-to-day 
lendar. plus providing fixes on the dates of 
;nificant cutural and civic events in the city 
■oughout the year. 

As Mrs. Zilber — the "Binnie" of the new 
siness team — explains it: "We kept reading 
out events in the newspapers after they oc- 
rred — there was so much to do in San Fran- 
co and we were missing it! We saw the need 
■ a calendar of events." 

They saw the need and went to work, despite 
' demands of home and children. At first, 
otograpiiers and printers came to their 
mes. bringing their wares and works to the 
sy homemakers. 

When they had dummied a four-page mock- 
of their proposed calendar, De Filippi and 




>HIN.\\ KW (I.), fanu-d rpslatirttlt'iir (lis- 
Hses the new ffotirnict hook, "Eiiiht Immortnl 
nvors" with co-tiiilhor Molly l.t'oiifi, and I'niit 
di'r of the lietiiil Mi-rcliiiiils Assoritition. 



Binnie approached the big downtown depart- 
ment and book stores. Response was more 
than simply enthusiastic — purchase orders 
were sufficient to guarantee printing costs. 

The first printing is already sold out — 
throughout the Bay Area — and a second press 
run is scheduled for November to catch the 
Christmas trade. 

Photographers represented in the calendar 
include Fred Lyon. Phil Palmer, George 



Knight, Bruce Williams, Jerry Stoll, Bob Hol- 
lingsworth. Dick Erath - — all by magnificent 
pictures of the city's many facets — and one of 
the incomparable pre-1906 Chinatown photos 
by Arnold Genthe. 

Designing of cover and opening page is by 
Owen Welsh and the work is printed by 
George Lithograph Comi)any. The calendar is 
obtainable from department and book stores 
throughout the Bay Area. 




Walk the Citv. Se^ the World 



The Heritage 
of Nations 

With a population of 742.855 (1960 U. S. census), representing a great 
•liversification in its racial and national origins and influence, a walk around 
San Francisco's neighborhoods is like a trip around the world. 

San Francisco owes its cosmopolitan origin to the early Portuguese, 
English and Spanish freehooters of the 1700's. Don Caspar de Portola was 
the first white man to see San Francisco's awe-inspiring 450-square mile hav 
(1769). 

After the Spaniards, Russians, Mexicans, Knglish and Americans came to 
rule or he ruled hy San Francisco's enchant m<Mit. the city — then a sleepy 
village called El Parnjc do Yorba Biicna, or the Little Valley of the Good 
Hcrh, hv its Spanish founders — saw the Stars and Stripes replace the Mexican 
natioiial flag July 9, 1846. W ith the discovery of gold in a millrace on the 
American River near the foothills of the mighty Sierra Nevada mountains, a 
variety of races and nationalities poured into San Francisco. There are now 
more than 6()(),00() Caucasians, ahout 76,000 Negroes and more than 62.(K)0 
Orientals in San Francisco, including more than 36.000 (^iiinese. 

Leading national groups — including native and foreign-horn — (in round 
figures) are: Italians, 41,000; Chinese. 36,000; Germans. 29.000; Irish (Eire), 
21,000; English, Scotch and Welsh, 22,000; Canadians, 16,000; Russians, 16,- 
000: Mexicans, 16,000; Swedish, 7.000; French, 7.000; Polish, 6,000; Austrians, 
5.000; and Portuguese, 2,000. 

In the heart of downtown San Francisco is one of the world's most amazing 
communities — Chinatown. 

A city-within-a-city, Chinatown is the largest Oriental settleineiit outsid«> 
of Asia, containing ahout 30,(K)0 Americans either Chinese-born or of (Chinese 
descent. 

Next to Chinatown where (Jolunilnis Avenue slants into Grant Avenue — 
is the Italian section, "Little Italy," the world of Neopolitans and Tuscans, 
Romans, Sicilians and Venetians and assorted paisani "from the toe to the 
knee of the Italian hoot." It was here that Amadeo (iiannini founded the 
Hank of Italy, later to become the Bank of America N.T. & S.A. hirgest bank 
in the world and fourth largest corporation in the country.
